Send a policy to the entire organization and track acceptance

Hi all,

 

I have a use case where I need to send a policy to the entire organization and track the employees acceptance. I did this via an excel sheet with all of the emails (which was built manually) and customized the workflow to each employee. It was hugely inefficient and there must be a better way. Please help.

@pete_horan Not sure about specifics but something like this can be done :

 

Send email to users with their empid/email id in subject line followed by a special character

E.g. Subject - Accept this policy asap #3789/john@doe.com

 

and in the body add instructions for them to reply to the email as accept/reject(case sensitive)

 

and you can have a flow which triggers when an email is received, from the subject line you get empid/email id by doing a split operation by special character.

 

From the body extract the value - accept/reject and do you thing, update in a SharePoint list or excel.

 

Not sure if you how many users do you have, but now that you have the excel just upload it in a SharePoint list and add a column for accept/reject

 

Flow 1 - to send email for each item in the list 

Flow 2 - to update item when new email received/for each response.
