Delay Trigger until ID is populated.

Hi MS,


I have a flow where by when a new item is created i have a trigger that automatically populates the ID field. I then have another trigger that sends a Teams message to a group to say a new Item has been added. The ID field is being populated using the following expression within the update item Trigger: concat('BG',formatNumber(triggerBody()?['ID'],'000000'))



When the teams message sends the ID does not populate in the message. my guess is that it has not been created yet.


What is the best solution so the teams message is populated with the ID? is there a way to delay the message teams trigger?


Please see screen shot below of the flow.

HI @Mamzy 


When it's triggered, the ID is already present. The one you're generating is the Term ID.


Can you please check in the log if the second step has an input and output expected?

Hi @manuelstgomes,


Thanks for getting back to me.


I am created the TermID based off of the ID and concatenating BG00000 at the beginning of the ID. see below.




I can see from the Log as well that the Term ID is being generated but this then is not present in the team Message. See screen shots below.



The [Getting new ID...] is the default message in the TermID column.


Please advise why the TermID is not being populated with the TermID being generated. And how do i fix this so that it is.
