Microsoft Flow: Trigger email based on user input
I have posted this article as requested by one of the users in my other article which I shared the link over here.
Requirement: I have a SharePoint list with the following columns:
- Department (Choice): IT, HR, Sales, Finance
- Project Completed (Date)
- Program Completed (Date)
He want to get an email notification if the following requirements are met.
If Department equals HR
Or if Department equals Finance
And if Project Completed is not equal to null
Or Program Completed is not equal to null
Let us try to do step by step how to get the issue.
Step 1: Log in to your SharePoint Online Site -> Create a List as below. This list contains four custom columns that are mentioned above.
Step 2: Next go to Power Automate -> Create a New flow for this List.
Step 3: Next you have to choose the flow which will fulfill this requirement. So here I have selected Send a Customized Email when a new SharePoint List item is added.
Note: You can create an empty flow and add your condition or you can use this one and remove not required action fields from flow.
Step 4: Once my flow gets created, you have to add a condition and you can provide the field name like below.
Step 5: Next add an email in If yes statement. If any of the above conditions get satisfied, it will trigger an email otherwise no email will trigger.
Step 7: Inside If Yes, add an action called Send an Email notification. Next, configure your email subject and body based on your requirement.
Step 8: Next save your flow and run it to test. When I added one item into a list, My condition gets satisfied so I receive an email in my outlook.
