Using power automate to lookup and return value

Hi,

 

I'm new to power automate and have only used it for approvals and storing form responses.

 

I've been given a challenge with the purpose being that if an employee wants to go 'off-catalogue' and come up with a price for one of our products we want them to a) log the reason for that and b) use a set price.

 

Is there a way to do this using a flow? Can a flow look up cost X on a Sharepoint list (or Excel) and email/Teams price Y back to the user?

 

I'm think that if the user puts the request on a form, then we can log that, and then it flows to the lookup.

 

Is that possible?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Yes it's possible. In the SharePoint Get Items section you can use an OData equals operator to fetch the information you need from the column. Then you can use that value to compose the email. If you don't know how to use it here's a reference that might help you:

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?
