I'm new to Power Automate and am looking for some advice on the best way to do this. I receive an email weekly with an Excel spreadsheet attached. I would like to filter it by department, and then by items that are due in 14 days, and send an email automatically to the person(s) listed in the Project Owner(s) column, to remind them the date is coming up. I have Office 365, so Excel Online and SharePoint are options, if using SP would be any easier.
I've been playing around with it, so I can show what I've tried if that would help, but they always end up with errors or, if "successful," I still don't get an email. If anyone is willing to walk me through the best way to do this, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
Hi @Jupie354 ,
Could you share a screenshot of the current configuration of Flow?
Ok, here's what I have. The issue I'm currently having is searching Office 365 by user ID or name. I started out by putting my email address into the Project Owners column on the spreadsheet just to make sure I had the rest working, and it did work then. The Project Owners column will come in the email with the names formatted like this: Thomas, Bob F (THOMABF). Sometimes it has more than one name in the cell, separated with a semi colon. I tried to follow some steps I found here for searching for users in Office 365, but I don't quite understand how to fit that in with what I already had working, so this is probably a mess. I put my own name in that format in all the rows on the spreadsheet and when I run it, it says it's successful but I don't get anything. Any ideas? Thank you!
Hi @Jupie354 ,
According to the situation you describe, there are two situations that will cause Flow to run successfully but you will not receive an email.
Please check it.
