Re: is feasible to add a person to a group from a trigger?

Hi,

If I understand correctly, you want a trigger action to automatically add a person to a group in Yammer. This sounds like a job for Flow Smiley Happy

 

In Flow, you can start with the trigger that when a new response is submitted to a form, it will run the subsequent actions.flow - form trigger.png

 

 

Your next action would be to add the user to the Yammer group.

 

At the moment, Yammer has a connector to PowerApps and Flow, but it doesn't have the create user action out of the box. You can make the action yourself by using the Yammer REST API:

 

https://developer.yammer.com/docs/usersjson-1

 

If you're new to REST APIs, @vivekb has the videos that walk through examples of them (I learned from him).

Here's one example, but you can check out the rest of his channel:

Let me know how far you get.

 

Mr. Dang
