Modify a list using a URL

New Contributor


I'm an avid OOB Sharepoint Online Power User.

I have no formal skills in programming, only what I pick up along the way.

I have a problem, I don't know how to solve it, maybe you can point me down the right path (yes, you casual reader)...

I have a List(ListA) with 2 Columns.  Column A is Rich Text.  Column B is a Text.

PROBLEM- Sending an email, by workflow, that has 3 links- option A,B,C.  Each link needs to update Column B in ListA with Text ie "picked option B".  

I really need 1 click. 

This little project is for a Retirement Community and anymore than 1 click in an email and they are in a Rabit Hole.

I think I have to use REST, JAVA and put it on a new page.  Did i mention I'm an OOB guy and fine Electrician but a unskilled programmer?

Any help would be most appreciated.

If you are looking for zero code approach and have the right licenses, I'm think you may actually be able to do this by using Microsoft Forms and Flow.

* Send à link to the Form to your users with the choices

* Have a Flow trigger on the Form submit

* Flow will copy the input from your form to the SharePoint list


See if this template is any good for you as a start
