Sharepoint: Attaching the approval email to the Sharepoint Item

Hi team,

 

Ok, so I've got this beautiful approval flow build (including a very nice PowerApp) however there is one action I want it to do that would make it amazing.

 

Currently, the frontline raises a request which goes to their leaders as an approve/reject email.

Once the leader selects approve/reject it triggers an email to the agent that raised the request and updates the sharepoint item status.

 

What I want to know is:

How can I get the flow to also attach that email to the sharepoint item?

Re: Sharepoint: Attaching the approval email to the Sharepoint Item

Hi @VRCattermole,

 

As @jannaj said, you could create a multi-row text column in your list then update that column with the text from the email using update item.

 

Attaching an email to a Sharepoint Item is not supported in microsoft flow currently,

If you want to attach the approval email to the Sharepoint Item directly, I afraid that there is no any way to attach an email to the Sharepoint Item.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Best regards,

Alice

Re: Sharepoint: Attaching the approval email to the Sharepoint Item

If I am understanding what you're trying to do here...I think the only way to do that would be to create a multi-row text column in your list then update that column with the text from the email using update item, OR...use something like PlumSail Documents to convert the email to a pdf then update the Attachments field in the list item.
