Hi,

 

I have just started to look at and use Microsoft Forms.

I would like to automate emails when a staff member fills in a form. Ideally to their manager (who is recorded in AD which in turn is synced to Azure AD via AD Connect).

 

Is this in any way possible, e.g. using Flow etc.?

 

Thank you,

Ollie

Yup, flow has a form trigger for when a form submission is submitted. You have to share the form using the people in your organization option and I think you can use the built in Submitter e-mail for your lookup etc. Otherwise you'll have to collect that data when they fill it out and hope they don't typo. Anyway, it should look something like this, you have to collect, then get details and put your steps inside the loop to access the form data in your actions.
