Append Custom list comments from email

Hi there,


I have a flow that gets started when an email is received in a specific mailbox and dumps all the required data into a Sharepoint list. that is working all fine. Now what I'm trying to accomplish here is, when I reply to the email, the reply comment should get appended to the Sharepoint list item field (Comments). kind of have a comment "history" of the item.


Any ideas how to accomplish this task in Flow?


Thanks very much in advance for your help.

To retrieve past versions in SharePoint, you'll need to make an HTTP call to SharePoint.

Here is a link to a blog post that should get you started.

Hello @MidwayC11 

Have you turned on version history for the Comment column?

If Yes, then you should just update the Comment field in your flow and the version history will handle the rest.

Hope this helps you on the way 🙂 Kind regards, John
