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
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.)
I agree. It would be very usefeul to have that kind of trigger. In my opinion it's required for many scenarios around Groups.
There is so much that we can do with this. We drive so much content through our Outlook Groups and we are going to start using tags to mark specific content. We will be able to drive automated behaviors if we can watch emails coming into those groups and then take specific action.
We too would like this. Since you cannot currently do "nested" Groups, we could use this functionality to automatically email the "other" groups whenever the main group receives a message.
this would be ideal.
I am working with a customer, who would also like a Flow to trigger a notification into their Microsoft Teams space, when a mail arrives in their Outlook O365 group mailbox.
I have tested this successfully with my personal mailbox and an O365 groups based Teams space, but this doesnt seem to work for the mailbox of the Group and flow fails with 'REST API is not yet supported for this mailbox. This error can occur for sandbox (test) accounts or for accounts that are on a dedicated (on-premise) mail server. clientRequestId: 5612a160-f7d1-4917-aa58-2b2707fce0dd'.
as echoe'd above, this would be hugely relevant to streamline O365 groups based activity into a single appliccation layer such as Teams. Any idea whether this is on the roadmap?
Since the Office 365 group is easier to use, we are eager to implement this function.
It would assist in deployment/adoption of Teams, as well.
Consider an Office 365 group's Teams Files -> today, any attachment sent to a group needs to be manually added to a document library.
I'm sort of surprised this already doesn't exist. There are a number of simply, but hugely important, workflows that couple benefit from this connector. Plus it's not like there is 3rd-party that would make things difficult. I say do this as quickly as possible.
would be very helpfull, there are tons of pssiblilities for this case!!
I received requests from the other customer for this function. It is a useful function for many people, so I hope you to implement it soon.
I also have a few clients that need this trigger, as mentioned by @Anonymous I'm surprised this has not already been done. Please implement this soon!
