Here’s how to save all attachments when an email arrives and move the email automatically. Nothing like automation that does 100% of the work for us. I'll also explain why the obvious solution won't work and show you a workaround in fixing it.
Do you have tasks that you need to do on the last working day of the month? Any reports to execute, backup to run, summary mail to send? Following the great idea of GTD (Get Things Done by David Allen), you shouldn't remember it, but set up a trigger that reminds you about this task to do at a specific point in time.
Do you want to build a flow that is triggered only when the particular mail arrives at the mailbox, and your condition wish list is long?
You can solve it using trigger conditions that are not well documented. I hope this article will fill this gap.
Some flows might run more often than you expect. For example, you create a flow that sends you a push notification whenever your manager sends you an email (by the way this is an example from Microsoft Learn). That flow must run every time you get an email from anyone because the flow must check whether the email came from your manager. This action counts as a run. And it doesn't need to be this way.
I’ve seen some questions recently on the Power Platform Forums about how to send multiple attachments submitted in Microsoft Forms in an email. Since this seems to be a common problem I thought it would be good to walk through the steps in a BLOG post.
A few days back, I was working with one of our customers. His requirement was very simple and he wanted to record Microsoft Forms choice response in a SharePoint List.
I quickly googled and found atemplatewhich exactly meets the customer requirements but he said that the template did not work for him. To be very honest, the customers form was very simple with a multi choice field but when he tried updating the SharePoint list, Power Automate complained. At that point I realized that something simple can also turn into a complicated scenario.
If you've used SharePoint designer before, you know how easy it is to change item level permissions by first breaking the inheritance (List/Library Level Permissions on the item/file) and then adding new permissions for a person, people, or a specific SharePoint Group.
In this post, we'll be going over how to do all of these things using Power Automate (Flow)!
In the engineering world, we used to write N number of lines of code to create an application like to send an email notification, to run desktop application, to read/write data in the csv file, etc. But today Microsoft developed precious power automate component and made all engineer life easier. I would like to thank Microsoft!
I was asked recently if it was possible to upload a file via a Microsoft Form and then use Power Automate Approvals to Approve the file. The answer of course is YES, but that doesn’t answer the question of HOW? So in this POST I will walk through a simple example showing how this can be done.
In this blog post, you will learn how to achieve the following using the automated flow from Power Automate.
retrieve the files attached to the entity in Notes (annotation)
retrieve the queue to set as an email sender
adding attachments to the email entity
send email from Dynamics 365/CDS using bound action
The Use Case: Case office generates a successful letter and attaches as a note to the case entity. Then, the case status is updated to Approved and the Application Successful email is automatically sent out to the customer together with the successful letter attachment.
I can tell you right away that if you're going to be working for Microsoft, you're going to be receiving a LOT of emails and you'd better have a way of keeping track of the really important ones to make sure that they are all being read and addressed properly. There are MANY ways to do this with Microsoft Flow. I'll show you how I make sure that I know every time my boss sends me an email.
