RSS can't grab <content> and <author> fields... (╯ಠ_ಠ)╯︵ ┻━┻

If you will take a look at this RSS feed for instance -> you can see that it has <content> and <author> fields which are pretty much standard for any Atom RSS feed today. Currently Microsoft Flow can grab the following:

  • Categories - Item
  • Feed categories
  • Feed copyright information
  • Feed ID
  • Feed links
  • Feed published on
  • Feed summary
  • Feed title
  • Feed updated on
  • links - Item
  • Primary feed link
  • Represents a wrapper object for batch trigger response
  • Represents an RSS feed item

Yet two very important ones are missing! Feed author and Feed content!


I recommend to take a look at how Zapier ( implemented thier RSS grabber to get the right inspiration!

1.5 years have passed and still not available. I am willing to create an automated task in which only content from certain authors triggers the workflow. Meanwhile, is there any possible workaround?

I totally agree. The Zapier RSS works flawlessly. Why can't Power Automate do the same??

I'd like to switch from IFTTT (they can do it) to Flows, but no luck... ☹️
