Trigger flow manually - send email - update item (SP)

I am looking to build a flow which is triggered manually to send a notification but parallell to that I want it to send an email with follow on action to update an item in SP list I am writing back too (so I can update status).

I have built the flow but am stuck at update item as the dynamic content for the SP list is not available so I am unable to select the relevant ID field to enable write back to SP. I would expect that when I am linking the flow action to the SP site address and list name that the dynamic content would be available, this is what is preventing me continue and save Smiley Sad

Re: Trigger flow manually - send email - update item (SP)

Hi @Basic_User007,

 

Do you want to create a flow to send an email and update SharePoint list item when it is triggered by a Button?

When using the action Update item, we are asked to specify a unique identifier for the Id field. Before the action Update item, please add the action Get items, then filter out the specific item using a Condition with a common value.

Please take the following flow for a reference.

Re: Trigger flow manually - send email - update item (SP)

Hi Mabel, 

Thank you for your response. I will apply the Get item and test this end - looks to possibly be the missing link (hopefully). 

 

I will keep you posted! Smiley Happy 

Re: Trigger flow manually - send email - update item (SP)

Hi @v-yamao-msft

 

So the Get Item worked perfectly - what is the purpose of adding this? Does this create the link back to the SP item to then create the next step/link? 

The only issue I have now is that it updated all items but I want it to be selective so will need to have a tweak or re-think on the steps - ideally I want it to update the item of the email address I have sent the email too - this is part of the manual trigger. 

 

Thanks for your help

Hi @v-yamao-msft

 

Managed to adapt a condition to select ID required to update so all singing and dancing now. 

 

Just need an option to duplicate a Flow as I need to re-create the same for an additional final step so this would be perfect considering 99% of my elements are the same - does anything exist or work in progress for this? 

 

Thanks again!
