Add an attachment to a sharepoint list

I want to create a list entry in a sharepoibt list triggered against sending an email.  I want to add the email attachments to the sharepoint list item created attachment.  It doesn't appear that there is a flow action that allows the ability to attach items to a sharepoint list item.


Please help me understand what I am missing.

Re: Add an attachment to a sharepoint list

Hi @Mitso1969,


if you would like to store the Attachments from Email to A newly created lists which is based on the e-mail arriving, this is not supported currently.

Attachments in Email are in table format, which is not supported under SharePoint list items. For Attachments under each SharePoint List items, we need to know the list ID, in order to get access to the related attachments, see this thread for reference:

Currently we could save the attachments into SharePoint Library.

Hope the information above is helpful.

Re: Add an attachment to a sharepoint list

Thanks for your reply.  Doesn't really address the problem.  We still need a way to automate the attachment of documents to a Sharepoint List.  Seems pretty fundamental.  Looks like we'll have to wait for enhancements.

Now, they have Action "Add attachment" in SarePoint connector that is useful in adding attachments into the SharePoint list item. However, I am unable to add .txt file. Other file like word, pdf, jpg etc works.
