created a new Form in a group - how do I access that Form in Flow?

I created a new Form in a group, but I don't see that Form in the dropdown list when I start my Flow with the "Microsoft Forms when a new response is submitted" trigger.

I realize that until recently, Forms were only created in the stand-alone Sharepoint Forms area, but now they can be created in Groups, which is great. But they should be accessible in Flow, just like any other Form.

 

For example, I created a Form called "Test Form 9-18-17" in my XYZ group. But "Test Form 9-18-17" is not showing in the dropdown list when I adde the "Microsoft Forms when a new response is submitted" trigger.

 

Ideas?  Is there support for this?

Hi @jwalitt,

 

I think here you mean the SharePoint form?

The trigger you mentioned is for the following product:

https://forms.office.com/

 

If here you mean to work with the Microsoft SharePoint Data Forms, then this is not supported.

Check the article below:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-data-forms-using-SharePoint-Designer-5b5e3970-af22-4...

"

Data Views inserted as forms can be created for SharePoint lists and libraries, database connections, and local XML documents. They do not, however, support SOAP and REST Web service connections. 

"

While Flow is built under REST Web service connections.

 

Regards,

Michael

I have experienced the same problem, I can see forms I have created "My Forms" but I can't see forms I created in a group in a Team for example.

I have managed to get this Group Forms to Work in Flow. When you select Form ID, paster the Group Form ID as a Custom Value. You can get the ID from the Form Share Link. Also use Custom Value in the Get Response Details. If all works, you will see the Form Questions from the Group Form which, you can utilize.

I have the same problem.

I check the link to obtain my groupe id 

 

https://teams.microsoft.com/l/channel/19%3aa838ee030c714dc1911a460c26a62ab6%40thread.skype/Inscripti...

 

I paste 9f8002e5-51ee-4aa5-9d65-4a85a67a68fd in the form Id but i can't see the form question.

 

Where is my error ?

Thank you, copying the "Share" link (not the the share as template**) and everything after formID = worked great!

This one line solution saved me days of work!  Never in a million years would I have guessed that using the last bit of the URL for the Form ID would have allowed me to utilize a Group Gorm in a Flow.  🙂

I am also trying to use group form to create item in microsoft flow. The method above works for me one day, but the next day, the link became broken and i have to fix my flow again. Anyone experienced that? see screenshot below.error.PNG

That link doesn't work.

When do you think this functionality will be available? Seems strange that you can move forms into a group but it doesn't warn you about losing functionality in the process.

Hi there

This worked for me too until some time ago.
Just pasting the ID of the form.
But now it's not working anymore.
Does someone else experience the same issue? or is it still working for you?
