Updating SharePoint contact list

We currently have a list of active interpreters who work for us and we need to maintain a contact list with their information. If a new interpreters is added to our team, or contact info is updated for them, we need that to be added or amended in the contact list. However, I cannot seem to get the flow syntax correct. 

 

So I need the flow to lookup existing items in the contact list, if the Candidate Name already exists, then update the item. If not, create a new contact.

Re: Updating SharePoint contact list

Hi @crystalhowat ,

 

Do you want to create a new item in Contact list if it doesn’t exist, while update it if it already exists?

 

I have figured out the following configuration for your reference.

 

In my scenario, I am using array variables to check whether the item exists or not. If it exists, find out the specific one, update it. If it doesn’t exist, create a new one.

Re: Updating SharePoint contact list

Thank you @v-yamao-msft!

 

It is working and I was able to sync to my outlook but I cannot use the group to send an email. Any tips or tricks? I tried to create a form and failed, maybe I need a button to start a flow from my contact list?
