How to notify a user that he/she has been assigned a record of an entity in Dynamics 365?

I want to create a Microsoft Flow that notifies a user whenever he/she has been assigned a record.

I have used When a record is created, Condition and Send a mobile notification activities. But couldn't get the required output. Can anybody please help me?

Hey @Sunayana8 

 

As you mentioned that you want to notify the user when a record is assigned to them, you can use the when a record is updated trigger: tesw.PNG

This runs when the record is updated and only the owner of the record is modified. Gets the owner detail from the user entity and sends an email. Note that the Primary Email attribute from the user entity is the one that holds the email of the user. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Could you please guide me how to do this using Dynamic 365 connectors? The connectors that you have used are CDS connectors, isn't it?

Can you please post screenshots of your Flow, including the dynamic content that's available from your actions?

Thanks.

Hi @yashag2255 

I'm using the same flow to send notification when assignment happens. but I notice that the flow can't be triggered when user click the "Assign" button for the entity. 

I'm not sure how it happens, maybe this system level button doesn't call the Update method of the Entity. 

May I know if you have any idea about this? Thanks in advance!
