Post a message dynamically to a Kaizala Group

Hi all,

 

I have two Kaizala Groups named "Family" and "Friends" and a SharePoint list with a Dropdown-column "KaizalaGroup" with the mentioned group Names.

 

The Flow triggers, when a new item is created, and shall post an announcement to the chosen Group in the column "KaizalaGroup".

But i the message won't be posted as i get the following Error Message:

Do I need to pass an GroupID that is not equal to the group Name? And if, how do i find that ID?

 

Best regards,

Eric

The Kaizala connector isn't designed to support dynamic group definition.  If you peek at the code you will see that the guid for the group is hard coded if you select from the list instead of adding a custom value.  To do what you want you'll have to add a condition that checks the value in the SharePoint column and then uses a hard coded action for the appropriate group.

Hi @EED_Solutions 

 

I never built a Power Automation using Kaizala but, by the error message, the "Group" parameter is probably expecting the ID and not the value. Something like "Kaizala Group ID".

 

Again, no experience with this, just looking at the error message, but could you please try this and let me know if it works?

Hi Manuel,

 

thy for the quick response.

No, it did not help, as I do not know the "Kaizala GroupID" or where to look it up (it is not listed obvouisly in the Kaizala Management Portal)

Hi Pstork1

 

thx for this nice hint.

 

so the highlighted String would be the Group ID then, so I need this to be passed as  Group ID.
