Kaizala groups via powerapps and flow

The idea is that all the responses are logged in a DB per subject, and may trigger some action.

Do you have that “been there, done that” feeling?

 

So when the subject is determined, a dynamic group is created on Kaizala, the appropriate people are added to the group, and an initial message is sent out.

This part I got working, and I’m now brainstorming on how I can log all response messages. 😊

 

I found some documentation on the kaizala connector, (not sure if carlosag.net is a good reference, but google seems to think so)

and immediately find the list in the documentation, is  longer than the list of functions in PowerApps itself. 

 

  • MicrosoftKaizala.AddGroupToGroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.AddSubscriberToGroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.AddUserToGroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.CreateSubgroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.DeleteTrigger
  • MicrosoftKaizala.RemoveGroupFromGroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.RemoveUserFromGroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.CreateGroup
  • MicrosoftKaizala.PostReaction
  • MicrosoftKaizala.SendActionReminder
  • MicrosoftKaizala.SendActions
  • MicrosoftKaizala.Send
  • MicrosoftKaizala.SendMessage
  • MicrosoftKaizala.SendReply
  • MicrosoftKaizala.UploadMediaFileContent
  • MicrosoftKaizala.UploadMediaFromAttachment
  • MicrosoftKaizala.UploadMediaFromURL

 

😕 Not sure if that is a good sign.

 

Maybe I should look for the solution, outside of the app, in flow.

Afterall it should continue, even if the app is stopped or the phone is turned off !!

 

I know a flow can be triggered by a message in a group, but my groups are dynamic,….

So how would I get a flow to be triggered by a message to a group I will create in an hour?

 

I thought perhaps by adding the dynamic group to a static one. (MicrosoftKaizala.AddGroupToGroup)

But can we still “see” the dynamic “subgroup” in the message, so we know what subject to update?

Will the top group receive a message when a subgroup replies?

From the docs I’ve seen so far, it is top down, so it will not.

 

I have tried making one group member of another.

There is a flow, that will trigger on a message in the top group, but I notice it remains inactive on a message in the subgroup.

Or am I doing it wrong?

 

Maybe I misunderstood what kaizala is about, and is it oriented to simply broadcast.

 

Thanks for any response,

 

Michel

Re: Kaizala groups via powerapps and flow

Hi @MichelH ,

Do you want to get a flow to be triggered by a message to a group that will be created in an hour?

I think you could try this:

1) Delay/do until action (delay some time)

2)Get the group id

3)Be triggered by a message to the group that you created just now

Here are docs about do until,delay until action for your reference:

What's more, about Flow I'm not so professional, I could only give you some advice.

I suggest you post your issue on Flow forum. There will be more professional engineers that can help you.
