pass gallery items to flow

Hi everyone. 

 

I have a pretty straightforward app as you can see from the photo attached. It's a simple request form.


Someone insert data on one side and sees that data in a gallery on the left. What if I want to pass all the data in the gallery to flow so the next user can work on the same data to add additional details? 

 

The best solution I can think of if JSON parsing but it doesn't work with Gallery.

 

Can anyone steer me in the least convoluted direction?

 

Thank you

Are the details that the second person adds, in the same app? or a second one.

 

To keep it a bit simpler, i would stay away from sending the data to Flow. Like you said, this is harder with multiple items and multiple columns.

 

If you have an ID column in the excel table, Why not pass the ID's to flow in the notification you send to the second person. 

 

Then that person can look up the item in a gallery in the app, and edit it.

 

It won't be the prettiest option, but an option nonetheless.

 

If there are a maximum amount of items User 1 can create, you could also convert each row into a string and pass in to flow, so you get 1 string per row. This won't work if there is an infinite amount of rows user1 can create.

Hi @floppy ,

 

It is not possible to send a collection/array/gallery to flow.

 

What if I want to pass all the data in the gallery to flow so the next user can work on the same data to add additional details? 

To my knowledge it is also not possible to edit data in Flow,

 

Where do you want the person to edit or add the data to your item??

 

Why not send the items to sharepoint (if you have access to it) with a Patch() and activate a flow after that. If you include a 'link to item' in the flow that the next person can click on, they will be taken to the item in sharepoint where they can make changes.

 

Let me know how i can help!

 

Regards,

 

I attach a very ugly diagram I just made in PP That my help you understand what I'm trying to do. The problem here is I'm dealing with multiple items. With just one I think I could be able to do it
