Hi @msarfaraz,


The easiest way is to create flow that will be triggered when new email arrives to your mailbox.


There is option to set Subject Filter for this trigger, there can be placed something like: "Date Last Updated:".

Next step there should be condition for subject verification and this subject should contain the current date like in formula below:


formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd')

In this case utcnow() represents current day and formatdatetime() is formatting it to specific format you have in Subject.

If this this condition is met, than you should store attachment by "Create file" on OneDrive for Business. and as File content use attachment, if there is need to rename previous file, then use FileName.


Hope this helped you.

Hi @msarfaraz,


Do you want to copy attachment files to OneDrive for Business folder based on the specific Subject of the received email?


I agree with @vecerpa's thought almost. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a "When a new email arrives" trigger, Has Attachment field and Include Attachments field both set to Yes.
  • Add a Condition, left input box set to Subject dynamic content of the trigger, right input box set to following formula:
concat('Date Last Updated: ', formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd'))

Within middle drop down, choose is equal to.


or you could also click "Edit in advanced mode", type the following formula:

@equals(triggerBody()?['Subject'], concat('Date Last Updated: ', formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd')))


  • Within "If/yes" branch of Condition, add a "Apply to each" action, input parameter set to Attachments dynamic content of the trigger.

         Within "Apply to each" action, add a "Create file" action of OneDrive for Business connector, specify Folder Path, File Name set to Name dynamic content of the trigger, File Content field set to Content dynamic content of the trigger.


Note: If the Dynamic contents would not be shown up automatically, please click the "See more" button within right Dynamic content panel.

Hi Kris 


The subject line is as below


IDeaS Reporting - Multi-Property - Date Last Updated: 2018-04-17 : Madinah Data Extraction Program Daily


Daily basis the dates get change i.e. tommorow the subject line will be


IDeaS Reporting - Multi-Property - Date Last Updated: 2018-04-18 : Madinah Data Extraction Program Daily

and so on, so what will be the formula 

Hi @msarfaraz,


Within the Condition box of the flow I provided, change the formula as below:


Left input box set to Subject dynamic content of the trigger, Right input box set to following formula:

concat('Date Last Updated: ', formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd'))

Within middle drop down, choose contains.


Or click "Edit in advanced mode", type the following formula:

@contains(triggerBody()?['Subject'], concat('Date Last Updated: ', formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd')))
