Office 365 Group email Trigger

Trigger a flow when an email is sent to an Office 365 group mailbox.

This will be helpful to:

- Save attachments sent to a group to team document library or one drive (something like incoming emails on SharePoint on prem)

- Automate creation of events based on email sent to a group mailbox

Status: Under Review

Hey folks -

 

Thank you for the responses.

I am following up with my team to see if we can add a trigger that allows you to trigger a flow off of a mailbox (irrespective of whether a given user is following / not following that mailbox.)

 

Stay tuned.

I think it is a nessary trigger and common feature on Microsoft Flow. However,  @Microsoft why you can't just add the trigger....

This is supported, if I understand the feature request correctly.

 

Adding your group alias in the To field - will ensure that the flow only triggers when an email is sent to the specified group.

Hello,

Triggering flows from emails sent to Office Groups is supported in the Product.

You can do this by specifying the Group alias in the 'To', 'CC', or 'To or CC' fields in the "When a new email arrives" trigger. This will ensure that flow triggers only when the group receives the email.

Note: The connection used with this trigger should have access to the group.

Please leave comments if I have misunderstood the feature request.


Thanks,

Sunay

No, this is only a Workaround.
What you describe is a trigger in a personal mailbox.
And this mailbox must be a member of the group and receive a copy of the mails.
But i think the most people looking for a trigger that works indipendent from a users mailbox.
We want to realize a group mailbox for hundreds of incoming invoices.
With a group trigger I could unsubscribe the group mails and let a Flow handle the incoming emails it self.
Another problems is, when a group member leaves the organization, which handles the trigger, the Flow or process will stop.
