How to retrieve the Name field from my private form

Hi everybody,

 

I have a little problem with Automate and Forms.

I have created a group forms and  tick Only members of my organization can answer.

 

I create a flow because I want to get the answers in teams but i can't add the column Name.

 

In my excel forms i have the column Name

name.png

 

but i can't choose Name in automate

 

not name.png

I wonder if this is normal behavior and if I have to add a Name field to my form ?

I also tried another solution to avoid creating a flow by ticking receive a mail notification of each response but but I never get any e-mail.

 

I hope to be clear. Thank you for your help

Hi @ALP1 ,

Firstly, I have to tell you that I use Forms and Flow (and SharePoint) a lot, but not Excel often (only for static tables) , so my trouble shooting skill here are quite low.

However I have one thought - is your column in Excel called "Name"? This is generally a "reserved" word and using it can cause issues such as the one you are having.

Thank you for your response.
Yes the Name column is a reserved column because it was added automatically by forms in the Excel file.

Otherwise, I'll make it simpler... I added the Forms connector to my channel.
It's not what I wanted but at least it will be that.
