How to retrieve text of MS Forms question

Greetings,

 

I have a form with about 20 questions that I want to flow into a sharepoint list.  Rather than create a list with 20 columns, I want to create a list with three columns: FormID, Question, Answer.   That being said, how can I get the text of the item to insert into the list?  It's easy to do the following:

 

* When a response is submitted

* Get Details

* Create Item in List by matching questions with fields in the list

 

What I want to do is this:

 

* When a response is submitted

* Get Details

* For each Question...

     * Get text of question

     * Create Item in List (ID, Question, Answer)

          * ID of form, Text of the question, Answer to the question

 

I assume there is an expression for this, but I can't find it.

 

Thanks!

Hello Rahkim, did you solve this? I've been trying to get questions text from a MS Form with Power Automate (or any other menner), but it seems to be impossible. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

As far as I can tell, this isn't possible.  Question text is not one of the pieces of data that is returned by the connector, so there's no way to reference it in the flow.

Thank you for your reply. Yesterday I achieve this with the HTTP with Azure AD connector in Power Automate. By now this appear to be the unique solution. The problem is that this is a PREMIUM connector, therefore very surely you will incur in additional costs. But the solution works like a charm. You can activate premium conectors trial versions 90 days for FREE; then, you have to pay. Here is the solution I folowed https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Pull-MS-Forms-Question/m-p/560273#M73153
