I have a SPO List.
1) User fills in form and enters a name into the 'Person/ Assigned to' field
2) When they click submit an email is sent to the assigned to.
This part is OK to do
3) If the person comes back and edits the assigned to and types in Person xyz.. I want to send an email to that Person instead.
I had this working I think by creating a second column called 'Previous Assigned to' and storing the 'Assigned to' person in here once created.
Is this the best way to do this?
Is it possible to send an email to the NEW assigned to person but CC in the email, the first Assigned to person...
May be overcomplicating it but does this make sense? There is a pic below of my flow.
Another option to think is created by field? Created by value never gets changed and it stored the name of the person who created the record.
Thanks for reply,
Does this work for creating a new item/ Record on a SharePoint Online list? Is the 'When a Task' part the same as saying When an Item?
How can I find the get last task version action? not sure what it is called :).
Do you have any more info on how to set this up so it works like, if a user modifies the record and changes the assigned to, to someone else, send an email to the New assigned to person and CC in email the previous owner? I would not want to use Created field if possible here 🙂
For now all I done is..
I created a second column called 'Previous Owner'
Then I have a condition saying when an item is created or modified, if the Assigned Owner is NOT equal to the previous owner,
Send an email to the assigned owner.
After this I update the item and update the Previous Owner Column to the Assigned Owner value so the flow does not keep re-running
Does this make sense? I think it works.. but I don't know if I missed some test or if it may mess up somewhere..
