Team Shifts email notification

Hi All,

 

I am trying to create a flow that will send out an email notification to the team member assigned to the shift when a shift is created, updated, or deleted.  Not sure where to start with this one.  Thank you

Hi @burliad,

 

I have created a example for you below.

 

1. Add the When a shift is create, update or deleted trigger action. Select your Shifts Team

2. Add a Get a Shift action, use the Resource Id dynamic value for the Shift ID

3. Add a Get user action, use the Shift Assigned To User ID for the User Id field

4. Add a Send an email (V2) action, use the mail for the To field. You can of course change the subject and body fields of that e-mail action to whatever you want.

The end result should look something like this.

Hope this helps a bit to get you started?

It looks like everything is working but I am also getting emails along with the team member who has the shift

Hi @burliad,

 

Maybe you can add a condition action to filter out your email address?

 ok, I see the real problem.  I checked my sent items in my outlook and the flow is still sending the email to ALL MEMBERS of the team, even people who did not have any changes to their shift.  It also looks like there are 2 emails going out.  There is only one email in the whole bunch that has the dynamic info of the shift listed in it.  I have posed some screen shots.
