Help With Conditions

I am trying to create a process whereby I would be notified when a PDF file is added to a new folder (also, I would get notified if one has not been added)  I put a condition & I get an erro saying it is not specified.

 

I do not understand what I am doing wrong.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you!

Hi @UntuckedKyrie

 

The function to link two flows that you mentioned is not supported in microsoft flow currently.'

 

An alternative way maybe create a list with a column to record if the a response is defined (the pdf file has been uploaded to Folder B).

I have made a test on my side to create a list with a "Yes/No" type column "ResponseRecorded" column, and I have created an item in the list, the "ResponseRecorded" column of the item is No, since it is the first item, the item id should be "1".

 

And the first flow should as below:

The second flow should as below:

Hi @UntuckedKyrie,

 

Could you please explain more details about the "I would get notified if one has not been added" that you mentioned?

 

I see you have added a trigger "When a file is created" under the Delay in your flow, a trigger could only be added in the top of a flow as first step and couldn't be added in the middle of a flow, and one flow could only have one trigger , so you couldn't add the trigger "When a file is created" inside the flow under the Delay.

 

You could consider create two flows to achieve your needs, instead of add to trigger in one single flow.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Thanks for reply & sorry for the delay, I was out of town. 

 

Basically, what I am trying to create is a flow where Person 1 is sent an e-mail when a file is added to Folder A (to alert them that a file has been added).   I would also be alerted when this file is added to Folder A.

 

If after a certain period of time (I used 10 minutes for testing pusposes but it would be longer in real life) a response isn't recorded a reminder email would be sent to Person 1.  In this case, a response is defined as uploading a PDF fild to Folder B.  If the file has been uploaded to Folder B (i.e. a response has been recorded) I would recieve an e-mail notification.

 

And thank you for taking a look, Alice!  I appreciate the clarification on the 'trigger' action.  Is there a way to link the two  flows?  I will investigate further.

 

I know there are easier ways to set up this process using the approval function but I kind of have to troubleshoot using this general process.
