Wanting to set up a daily flow with Power Automate (Email with Form, Form to update SharePoint list item)

I am trying to use Power Automate to set up what I think is an easy task. 

 

1) At a designated time, send an email to our internal group (via an Outlook Distro List)

2) Embed a simple 1 question choice selection MS Form

3) Take each individuals response and update an existing list item for that individual with their response

 

Is this possible?

Hi @MattViel ,

 

For the first question, you could use the Recurrence as the trigger to create the flow.

 

For the second question, you could try to submit your question in the MS Forms forum to see the feasibility of this requirement.

My suggestion here is to add a link to the form directly in the email body. Or you can send a survey through Send a survey action.

 

For the third question, you need to create a new Flow, use When a new response is submitted as the trigger, and use the Get response details action to get the response.

 

You need to add a column to the list to record the response ’s email so that you can find the specified item to update.

 

Take a try.
