Sending notification mails should be possible via an alias.
In my case my client wants me to send automatic emails to partners when a corresponding item is added in a sharepoint list. I have nothing to do with these partners but they do get to see my personal email adress when I create a flow for automatic notifications.
This will only cause problems for me... the mails should be sent via "noreply" or something that indicates that it's coming from the flow.
The only solution that I see now, is to create an extra office 365 user... wich is a bit of overkill...
I tried to set up a flow using a shared Microsoft Form (I did not create the form, my colleague did). I can access the shared form in Microsoft Forms under Shared, but the form does not appear in the dropdown list of forms in Flow.
can we get a simple checkbox that would turn OFF sending an email notification from:email@example.com when sharing run-only flows. I have flows that are shared with the whole org and it is becoming spam-like.
...managers hate it and users are confused, even more so when I have to send a second email that actually explains the flow with the text "that you should ignore previous email from:firstname.lastname@example.org" that usually contains a link and screenshots as to how actually use the flow.
Also that blue "Get Button" button is useless for flows that runs on specific SHP items, it just generates errors from 100+ users that clicks on it ...
I would use share run-only with a SHP list but I cant give the whole org edit permission for these lists. (we use contribute as we dont allow deleting items), if there is a way to change it to contribute please let me know.
Within our documents folder in Sharepoint we have a folder that contains files which has a column for dates on when they are set to expire. What I'm looking to do is send an e-mail with the file name and expiration date once one of these dates is 30 days away, and send a follow up e-mail when it is 10 days away.
So far I haven't been able to select this folder in Flow (closest I've gotten is selecting the Documents folder) and I'm not sure how to reference the Expiration Date column.
've added some members of my team as owners of one of my flows. Unknown to me, they're getting emailed every time I update the flow. It doesn't seem like there is an option to turn this off. This should something that should be set on a user-level basis - active opt-in to receive notifications, and/or an easy opt-out method.
I have emails coming in with project codes in the subject
Rather than creating new rules every time I get involved in a new project (weekly) I'd like to set up a flow which both creates the new folder for a project code (if it doesn't exist yet) and then move the mail to that folder.
I can do the move item, but because the folder doesn't yet exist the flow fails.
When a flow is created with SharePoint as the connector, it should be able to use the submitter's information to run the flow rather than the creator's information. Otherwise, it is very confusing because the flow is shown as initiated by the creator but all of the informaition is about the submitter.
It lacks usability when you must update all required fields and choice fields that have default values on a SharePoint list item. I know in advanced settings that you can limit fields by a particular view but that itself is problematic. SharePoint Designer completed this task with ease.
It would be nice to have a trigger if a certain column in a SharePoint list is modified. For example, if the column "Status" is modified, or if the column "Assigned To" is populated. So we don't have to use the trigger "When an item is created or modified", where you have to create a lot of workaround conditions just to make sure that the column that was updated is what you need.
I have a team site setup for my team. We have several folders that we use as part of our work flow in our interview and hiring process. As we complete different aspect of the interview and hiring process, their file is moved to a different folder so everyone can tell where a particular applicant is in the hiring process. For example, once their back ground is completed, we move their file to the "Extend offer" folder. Once they accept, we move them into the "drug screening" folder, etc. Having a trigger that goes off anytime a file is moved into a particular folder would be very helpful in this process.
