Update sharepoint list row, with a second microsoft form.

I have one Microsoft form that when submitted creates a row on a SharePoint list.

An email with a link to a second Microsoft form.

The email includes reference to a unique id number that is created using power automated flow.

 

I need to set up a flow that when the second Microsoft form is summitted, looks for the unique id on the Sharepoint list, and updates that specific row.

 

I've tried different solutions found online but without success.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

@smsmc To look for the unique ID on your SP list, you will need to use a Filter Query.

 

You will need to use the internal column name of your unique ID column. Keep in mind that the internal column name may not always match the name displayed in your Sharepoint list. If you aren't sure how to get the Internal Column name, you can refer to this section of one of my YT Tutorials.

 

If your unique ID column is storing a text value, you'll need to ensure that your dynamic content from your form (that is storing the unique id) is inserted between single quotes.

If your unique ID column is storing a number value, you'll need to use an expression to convert your unique id value from your MS Form into a number.

 

Use the int() function.

Click on the dynamic content tab to insert the dynamic content from your MS form that is holding your unique ID.

Ensure that your expression isn't wrapped with single quotes. Single quotes are only required if the value is a string.

@creativeopinion Thank you for your help.

I've succeeded in updating the sharepoint list, using the unique id.

But now to avoid that an already updated item is overwritten, I would like to add a condition that checks, if the row has already been updated.

In case it already has been updated then will not re-update.

Any idea how this could be done?

Thank you
