send forms pro response data to powerapps

Hi all,

 

I'm building a powerapps app that users can fill in a ms forms pro form. I'd like some of the form response data sent back to powerapps so my app can take some action based on response data.

 

So far I've tried the following:

 

1. User presses button to trigger flow that waits for SP item to be created and then responds to powerapps with data.

2. Another separate flow creates a SP list item when new response is received. 

 

For some reason the first flow just gets stuck on waiting for a SP item to be created even though it's always created by the first flow.  

 

Does anyone have an idea as to how i should do this?

@asafweis - try searching for Customer Voice when you look for the entities and see if they come up. Or search for Survey Responses and see what comes up. There have been some updates so you might have a newer database structure with a slightly different name to the entities.

If you have forms pro you have common data service. All forms pro responses are stored in cds. Just build your app on cds and you already have the data in the cds survey response and question response entities https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/forms-pro/developer/forms-pro-reference

Thank you. I thought this as well but couldn’t find any CDS entities that looked related to msfp. 
any pointers on which entity to search for?

 

 Cheers. 

See my previous response. It contains a link to the full cds entity reference for forms pro entities

Hi @asafweis ,

Do you mean that your flow stuck  on waiting for a SP item to be created in the first flow?

Could you show me

1)does the first flow work successfully? If not, which action did it started to have error?

2)the configuration of the first flow?

3)the data that you use in powerapps to call the flow?

3)the formula that you use to call the flow?

Only if you have no problems of license, the problem should be about flow's configuration or app's formula.

Thanks Megan. That was it. Found the data although it's still a little tricky to navigate it, but I'm working on it. 

 

Now I just need to work out how to pass a context variable into an answer so i can keep track of the responses. 

 

Thanks everyone.

@asafweis - this link might be of interest then. It shows a ton of different ways you can use variables. https://meganvwalker.com/ten-ways-to-use-variables-in-forms-pro/ - although you cannot pass a variable directly in as an answer to a question on your survey, you can show it in the description and various other places. So this means you could display information, just not as an answer.
