CAPTURE EMAIL RESPONSE

Guys, Is there a way to do record responses from an email:

 

My flow looks like:

 

Form - when a new response is recorded  - works fine

Get response details - works fine

Creates an item in sharepoint list - works fine

 

This is the section i want to add

Send an email to a specific person with the details from that item and allow that person to input free text data into the email which in turn feeds back into the a specific column in the Shrepoint list?

 

The detials from the item would be sent to the emaul address and they complete the price section which then feeds back into the shrepoint list. So something simlar to sending an email with options but rather than options allow free text

 

Name - Dave

Ref  - 123

Price - Enter here

Hi @Anonymous 

 

So flow currently does not support waiting for an email response within a flow with a different trigger (Makes sense?). What you can do as a work around is, once the item is created, you can use the action: start and wait for an approval and mention the details in the body of the approval, assign the approval to the person you want the price details from. in the body, clearly mention that the person should approve and in type the price (*price only*) and nothing else in the remarks/comments. Now once the approver submits the approval with comments (price), you can get that comment and update the sharepoint item. 

 

Hope this Helps!
