Hi TecFX,

 

Currently, we can check flow status by clicking the List runs icon or Notifications button in flow.

Notifications button:

But it seems that currently when a flow fails, we are not able to configure the flow to send an email or a push notification. As flow is being improved, I would suggest you submit an idea at Flow Ideas Forum:

Thanks a bunch. I already know how to review the status of a flow. I have taken your suggestion and posted a Flow Idea.

 

It would be great to be able to trigger an action based on a failure or success notification.

Thanks, bud!

I voted for it too. One o the items i  need to include in my flow is to send an email if the 'Get Manager' action returned empty. Since we discovered that not all employees has 'manager' assigned to them in the A/D.

Hello @Tamras

 

have you tried to create a condition where you set for example the statement "Manager equals to [null]" then send an email that inform you?

@mmangiante I did. It didnt send any email out. It would be nice if the Get User Profile includes the manager field then I could just use that and test if the manager field is blank.

 

I had our A/D guy remove the manager assigned to my test account.

Sorry, the fields are in italian but hope you understand the meaning. 

 

Let me know: sincerely I only don't know if the empty value of the condition is good.
