Submit-form-approval-email-content

Hello, 

 

I'm a newborn baby who has almost zero understanding of how MS flow works. 

 

I would like to know if there is any way copy form content and send as attachment .pdf or .doc.? 

I read a few posts https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Send-MS-Form-results-as-email-attachment-not-just... and tried for my purpose but it doesn't work properly.  

 

Flow works until approval part and I also know how to display dynamic content in the email which works fine. please look these screen shots

Form submittedForm submittedapprovalapprovalemail contentemail content

 

 

 

This what I'm trying to achieve

 

  • Submit a form
  • Email submitter 
  • Send for approval iam@boss.com
  • If approved (email form content as pdf. or .doc or excel to sidekick@boss.com)
  • If Rejected (email reason to the submitter )
  • Create or add form content a SharePoint excel sheet or doc.

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thankkkooo 

Mahi

Hi @Mahipundir 

 

 

Use Outcome dynamic content in If condition

 

Outcome is equal to Approve

Update

 

  • Submitting MS form (works)
  • Approval works (works)
  • If yes (add Share-point record) (works)
  • email (form content) (works)

Only one issue I'm facing in both cases Approved or rejected it creates a share-point record. I would like if approved only then. 

 

Please look screenshot.

Don't know what is not right here any advice would be very helpful. 

 

Many Thanks

Hi @Mahipundir ,

 

The screenshot looks ok and can see only the create item is under the Yes condition.

 

Could you post a history of your flow run? 

 

Thanks

Hi @abm 

 

thanks for your reply 

I think this is what you were talking about..?

If not I can PM you the history ..? it's an excel sheet 

 

Many Thanks

Mahi

I don't think MS community let us send files. but here is the history. 

 

Simply copy this to excel (hope that will make some sense)

I hope it's correct. 

 

Many Thanks

Hi @Mahipundir ,

 

Yes it is and thanks for the post but you need to iterate the loop and see where in the no condition it creates the SharePoint list item?

 

Thanks

No, it doesn't it emails the submitter if the condition is no. please see the screenshot. Capture.PNG

That's it. 

 

Thank you 

Mahi

Hi @Mahipundir ,

 

You mentioned "Only one issue I'm facing in both cases Approved or rejected it creates a share-point record. I would like if approved only then." 

 

I can't see this from your first screenshot you provided. As you mentioned under the no condition there are no create sharepoint record.

 

I am missing something here?

 

Thanks

Thanks @abm 

 

Sorry, if it was difficult to understand, what I meant. 

 

Right now I'm only having one issue which is if "Approval request got reject" flow still add entries to SharePoint doc which I don't want. I only want entries added to Sharepoint when "Approval request get approve". 

 

I hope it makes sense now 😄

 

Kind Regards

Mahi

Hi @Mahipundir ,

 

Thanks for your quick reply. Here below I am using your screenshot. Where does it creates the entries to SharePoint doc?  Sorry still I am not following you.

Hi @abm 

 

Thank you 

 

 

So after Condition

If Outcome equal to Approve (If Yes) then it creates entries or adds new data (Create item) to .cvs or .doc in SharePoint>sites>documents

 

Thank You 

Mahi

Hi @Mahipundir ,

It make sense now 🙂 thanks.

 

So what you could do is declare a variable before the condition where you check approval. This variable type is boolean. Under the Yes condition set the flag as true. Then at the end step check the flag is true or false. Add the create sharepoint action under the true statement.

Hi @abm 

 

ah ha, I see what you meant, and tried but no success adding a variable before condition. 

 

Would you be able to show me one example (screenshots).? 

 

 

Kind Regards

Mahi

Hi @Mahipundir ,

 

Could you please send me your screenshot? Lets see whether I can pick something from that or not?

Hi @abm

I can setup value but it's not letting me set up variable name. and seems like this is wrong 😕

 

 

Thank you 

Mahi

Hi @Mahipundir ,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

This is what you need to do.

 

First declare the variable just after when a new response is submitted.

resp1.png

Set the variable to true after the outcome check under the yes statement.

resp2.png

 

Finally check the variable is true or false.
