How do u add a stop?

problem1.JPG

 

I will have a deeplink in the first email where I send the email to the user to guide the user to my PowerApps to insert their attachments.

 

The next email will ideally appear once the user submitted the attachments in the PowerApps.

 

At current state, both email will sent to corresponding email address without waiting for the user to submit his file. How can I add a stop button in this situation?

Initialize a boolean variable varFlag = false.

 

Place a do until action and set condition as varFlag = true.

 

In the do until action, check for the attachments or other required step. Once the requirement is met, set the variable varFlag = true. Then, the control will come out of the Do ... Until action and continues the next actions of the flow.

Keep the Count and Timeout in the mind... you can change Timeout from PT1H to maximum time. 

 

I do not recommend making the flow wait for very long time instead I prefer to redesign in a way I can trigger it on a flag change after requirement is met.

How do I check in the flow if the user already submitted an attachment to my sharepoint list via PowerApp? I'm cracking my head for this, HELP !

@ywliang96 

 

Once the email sent to the user, the user click on the link in the email which opens the PowerApp. On submitting the attachment, you want to continue HT Approval action.  Am I correct?

 

If I am correct, in the Do Until action, you use Get Attachments action if you already know the SharePoint List Item ID.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#get-attachments

 

After Get Attachments action, you can place Condition action to check if Get Attachements is empty OR have items. If it has items, you can set the variable varFlag = true. So that, it will come out of the loop and HR Approval action can continue.

Hi @ywliang96 

i am supposing that attachment through power apps form is submitted in SP List. In this situation you need to have a deadline date for documents attachment. Otherwise it will be difficult for you to set a wait for flow. IF you have date as a deadline for document attachment then you can follow these steps-

1. Use Delay Until- In Time stamp use you date & time here 

2. Use Condition Action - And check Your PowerApps List satisfied this condition- HasAttachments is equal to true. Then you can put your second email under Yes outcome of condition Action.

 

Thanks

Im kind of new in this power automation.. is it okay to show screenshot of the workflow instead?

"Condition action to check if Get Attachments is empty OR have items"

 

How can i do this?  I follow what u mentioned and the flow check the current latest one and doesnt wait for the user to input a new row in the sharepoint list. 

@ywliang96 

 

yes until unless you don't have problem.

@ywliang96 

 

You need date and time for this. Without definite date & time you can not pause flow.

@ywliang96 

 

if you want to use DO Until Action. you need to change the limits -

the iterations i managed to solve but 

 

problem 2.JPG

The ID indicates the current latest row in the receiving gift.. How can I add ID+1 so it will always be indicating the future ID instead of the current latest one?

@ywliang96 

 

Why do you want to check future ID? If the list item with ID does not exists, then you will get 0 attachments.

 

Regards

Krishna
