How do i get the dynamci content from a Form

  • 1.  How do i get the dynamci content from a Form

    Posted 4 days ago
    I am trying write my first Flow connected to a form. Essentially, it is a request form, that I want to take items listed on the form and add them to my to do list
    i am able to connect the Flow to the Form and I am able to create a task in the to-do list
    I CANNOT figure out how to access the dynamic content of the form. I have created an "Apply to each" and  I enabled the "Split ON" option so i am able to see each item.
    but i do not see how to access the individual items/fields from the form
    Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction

    @Moshe Raab,
    Hi there.  So, with Forms, you have the Form trigger "When a new response is submitted"​ to kick things off, but that doesn't come with the responses.  Typically, the very next step will be an action from Forms called "Get response details".
    This will automatically start an Apply to Each loop and from there you can work on the rest of your Flow.

    Keep us posted.

    Sorry, one more thing.
    I was ready to deploy, but in my tests i noticed that the flow seems to run under my ID even if others in the organization triggered it by the form
    how do i get the user id or the email of the person entering the form?
    the last step of the flow is an email. Now it is always sent by me, i need to know the email of the person filling out the form so that i can assign the creator of the task.

    Hey @Moshe Raab,
    The "Send eMail" will always try to send as you.  You do have the ability to send as another person, BUT you'll need that permission inside Office 365.  The idea there is that we ​don't want a mechanism where folks can spam others while pretending to be someone else (I know this isn't your intent, but that's one reason that is probably in place).

    I think if you're ok with the email coming from a generic address, check out the Mail connector here.  That will have some of its own issues, but it might work for your situation.

    Keep us posted.
