trigger flow when I am the only person on the email



I am working on using flow to help manage a very HIGH traffic in box. I want to create triggers for when only 1 person is on the to line with none in the cc. IE there could be a single point of failure. SO if an email is sent to me and only me (no one else in the to or cc) i want the flow to trigger. If there are multiple people either on the cc line or the to line I do not want it trigger

Re: trigger flow when I am the only person on the email

Hi @klabat28,


I am afraid there is no way to Trigger Flow only if the To field contains the specified email address by using ‘When a new email arrives’ action.

Currently Flow does not support such a feature.

If you want to function that you mentioned to be supported in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Maybe you could consider configuring a Condition in the next step of Trigger to determine the email address contained in To, CC, and BCC. If the conditions are met, perform all the steps in the following configuration.
