Flow fail: When a Item is deleted in a sharepoint list, delete outlook contact

Hi,

 

I am having a issue that I have been trying to solve.

I would like this to happen: 1 everytime a item is deleted from a sharepoint list -> a spesific outlook contact is deleted. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 18.26.18.png

 

I think it has something to do with the Id, that maybe the Sharepoint Id is different then the Outlook id?

 

Any ideas for how I can make this happen? I am a mac user.

 

Thanks

Hi @ Alphahorse,

 

 

If you want to delete a related outlook contact when a item is deleted,I would offer you an workaround to achieve it.

 

Please make sure:

step1.save the contact user name in the "Title" field (The default "Title" column) of every item in the sharepoint list.

step2.save the contact user name in the "Given Name" field of outlook contact.

step3.Make sure the contact user name in step1("Title") the same as contact user name in step2("Given Name").

 

Please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

Note:

Choose the "Given Name" dynamic content of the "Get Contacts" in the first column of Condition

Choose the "Name" dynamic content of the trigger in the last column of Condition

 

When an item is deleted from the list, the flow woud run successfully as below:

Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

The SharePoint ID and the Outlook ID are totally unrelated.

 

Without knowing more about how the Outlook contact and the SharePoint list item are related, I can't offer any suggestions.  Can you provide more detail?

Hi ScottShearer,

 

Thank you for your reply,

So in regards to this issue, all  have done is:

1. Created a sharepoint list and given every column a name based on the variables I need. Se here I have included more information about the customer then what Outlook can provide.

2. I created a flow that says: Everytime a new item is created in my sharepoint list, a new outlook contact. So the respective columns are here linked to the respective fields in the outlook contact form.

 

What I am essentually trying to do is to create a app were I can See all the contact information in addition to some extra information. In addition have the ability to create a new contact and delete an existing contact. I would also like to be able to midify it but I cannot really find a solution that works on the IOS version of Outlook.

 

Thanks
