Office 365 Group email Trigger

Trigger a flow when an email is sent to an Office 365 group mailbox.

This will be helpful to:

- Save attachments sent to a group to team document library or one drive (something like incoming emails on SharePoint on prem)

- Automate creation of events based on email sent to a group mailbox

Status: Need Info

Hello,

Triggering flows from emails sent to Office Groups is supported in the Product.

You can do this by specifying the Group alias in the 'To', 'CC', or 'To or CC' fields in the "When a new email arrives" trigger. This will ensure that flow triggers only when the group receives the email.

Note: The connection used with this trigger should have access to the group.

Please leave comments if I have misunderstood the feature request.


Thanks,

Understood, there are workarounds.  All of which require an IT admin to do something - creation of another mailbox to be a member, etc. - which puts me right back in the camp of just using a Shared Mailbox, which flows will trigger from.  Again, we need a solution that does not require an IT admin.  A user should be able to create an O365 Group and then create a Flow that triggers off of emails sent to the group - not off emails sent to members of the group, as many of our members want to be in the group, but don't want all of the emails (and don't talk to me about using rules on the members inboxes to 'hide' the emails and trigger the flow).  The request here is to have a Flow trigger for emails sent to an O365 Group, not to any of the members.  And for that, there currently is no user centric solution.  To that end, the Flow team should either put this on the roadmap to implement or decline it.

Amen. I just started, and this is the first thing I want to do with groups - set up tasks associated with emails. The request is 18 months old and it is clear - please either say yes or let us know not to bother waiting...

The proposed solution in by MS is useless. You have to subscribe to the group and have the group send emails to your inbox, then create a flow to track those messages now cluttering your inbox. Yeah, you could set filters, but what if the inbox you've set it on gets deleted if that person leaves? That is the whole point of the group box. It never gets deleted no matter who is there.

 

Please add this support for Group inboxes.
