@abm you helped me on the previous structure, can you help me with this?

3 ACCEPTED SOLUTIONS

Accepted Solutions

The ordering of the data shouldn't matter as the data will be in CSV format and the CSV data has a header describing the column:

Snag_c068f05.png

If you really need  to order the data, the simplest way will be to add another Select action after the apply to each loop. Add your column names in the order you require them along with their expressions

Snag_c0771a5.png

>>How I can custom columns like phone number, Language if they are coming from other sources?

I dont think there is going to be an easy way for you to merge multiple data sources into a single data source. Perhaps the best option could be to save each person record into a SharePoint list, then update each person record with data from the other sources.  The list would contain all the columns (fields) you need to populate and  update. You will need a way to identify each person in all your data sources, perhaps using the email address as the identifier?

Updated:  I realised I missed the Accepted property from the source data.

I have added this below as expression (4):

Snag_1029ab39.png

The expressions used are:

1: items('Apply_to_each')?['formResponse']?['answers']

2: item()?['question~']?['name']

3: item()?['answerDetails']?['com.linkedin.ads.TextQuestionAnswer']?['answer']

4: items('Apply_to_each')?['formResponse']?['consentResponses']?[0]?['accepted']

Here is a visual explanation of what is happening to the data, in the Select and Append to Array action:

ekarim2020_0-1658570982038.png

 

The replace function in the Append to array vaiable action:

 

 json(slice(replace(string(body('Select')), '},{',','),1,-1))

 

achieves the following:

ekarim2020_1-1658572112985.png

 

Although the "Accepted" property is duplicated, there can only be one Accept property value in the JSON object for each person. This property will only appear once after the string is converted to a JSON object in step 4.

 

Snag_1535dd59.png

Snag_15361fa2.png

This is the resulting string after the slice operation:

This is the resulting JSON object:

"name " should be the heading of the CSV table, and "answer" would be the value under the respected question

e.g. First Name , Last Name , Email, Company Name , Job title,, these should be the headers of csv table and all the answers will be the values under those header

Hi @PowerUser0 ,

 

Here is one possible solution. I've put the data from the elements array in an array variable:

Snag_b808df8.png

The varArray will be used to store the extracted data, and will be used to create the CSV or HTML table:

Snag_b80dce3.png

 

Loop trough each data item, and "reformat" the data:

Snag_b812527.png

The expressions used are:

1: items('Apply_to_each')?['formResponse']?['answers']

2: item()?['question~']?['name']

3: item()?['answerDetails']?['com.linkedin.ads.TextQuestionAnswer']?['answer']

4: json(slice(replace(string(body('Select')), '},{',','),1,-1))

 

Create a CSV table:

Snag_b81895f.png

Create a HTML table:

ekarim2020_0-1658408220278.png

 

The runtime output:

ekarim2020_1-1658408258620.png

The runtime output showing the HTML table:

ekarim2020_2-1658408280508.png

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @ekarim2020 

Thanks for your quick response, all the expressions are working fine, but the last one is not working for me,

here is the error screenshot

PowerUser0_0-1658415356669.png

 

@ekarim2020  Also, the order should be : 

First NameLast NameEmail AddressCompany NameCountryLanguagePromotional Communication PreferencesProgram StatusPhone NumberJob Title

 

How I can custom columns like phone number, Language if they are coming from other sources?

Please check that you are using the Append to Array variable action:
