dynamicly get input into an adaptive card


im using adaptive card to post a message into teams and also managed to trigger a second flow for approvals udsing the HTTP connector.

im using adpative card for the follwoing use case:  when user submit a document for approval an adaptive card is sent to the approver, when clicking the 'approve' button in the card a second flow is triggered using the HTTPS connector.


my question:

i want to add the following:

  1. button 'submit your comment'
  2. when the button is clicked a input.text field is opened to get the name of the user the comments are submitted to.
  3. second flow is triggered with the name that was typed to up[date a sharepoint liost with the ststus pending and the name in an additional field.

i tried to use the action.showcard button, but i can only type the name in, not sure how to forward it to the next flow, or even how to trigger it.


is this doable?

if additional details required or if i wasnt clear with the use case, will be happy to provide additional details.


regards, Eyal

Re: dynamicly get input into an adaptive card

Hi @Perez ,


I'm afraid that your requirement couldn't be achieved within Microsoft flow since the function that you mentioned to open a input.text field when a button is clicked is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.
