Send an e-mail notification the last working day of the month.pngDo 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.

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  a template which 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.

I've decided to write this solution for anyone that needs to be able to print automatically from flow.  The solution is pretty easy, but you need a few things first:

  1. A multifunction printer that supports POP3 email protocol (if you can scan to email from your copier it means you likely have POP3 capabilities too.  Most modern copiers have this ability.)
  2. An email address that is dedicated to only this task.

Hey Flow Fans!

 

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.

 

Enjoy!
