Get the last row in sharepoint to flow

Hi there,

 

I built a form that have about 20 questions in PowerApp. The user will then submit their answers in PowerApp then the answers will stored in to Sharepoint List. The idea is that when the user successfully submitted a form and the data stored in the sharepoint list, Microsoft flow will get triggered and get the 20 answers that the user input and translate it to PDF. 

 

How can I do this? How can I get the last item in sharepoint list from Microsoft Flow

Rather than send the last item in a SharePoint list to Flow you should instead send the record you submitted.  This is because two people could submit a form at the same time.

Put this code in the OnSuccess property of your EditForm to send the successfully submitted row to Flow.

 

your_flow_name.Run(Form1.LastSubmit)

 

Alternatively, if you are using the PATCH method to submit the form you can use code similar to this in the OnSelect property of the submit button.

 

Set(
    submittedRecord,
    Patch(your_datasource_name, Defaults(your_datasource_name), {Field1: txt_Field1.Text})
);
If(!IsBlank(submittedRecord), your_flow_name.Run(submittedRecord))
