"Repeat" data and Microsoft Flow...

I’ve been working with Survey123 and Microsoft Flow to automate an email response once a survey has been submitted.  I came across and article (published on Sept. 24, 2018) where it states that one of the limitations will be:

  • Data from repeats will also be missing in Microsoft Flow at the moment

 

Has Esri made any advancements in exposing repeating data in Microsoft Flow?  Is this still a limitation?

 

Also, is there a way to expose “select” question data from a submitted survey that does not require me to duplicate questions just so that I can display it in an email.  I have so many questions that I have to store answers twice just so that I can get it to work with Microsoft Flow.

 

Any assistance or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Have the exact same problem in Integromat. The only workaround I can think of is make an HTTP call via Integromat or Flow and use REST to hit the related table.

Eagerly await another solution as well.

Hi Dan,

As indicated, repeats are not supported within webhooks at this time.  Joe does point out a solution on another provider; unfortunately the Flow connector does not include the token information to be able to query the related records yet.

Is there a way to pull the repeat data out of the repeat and place it in a hidden data line within the main workflow to then pull something like an image attachment into a report?  This would be helpful if there is such a workaround.

Thanks.

Hi Jeff, 

It is possible to place information from a repeat into a hidden question by using functions such as join(); that being said, it wouldn't necessarily help get an attachment.
