Power Automate Dataverse Add New Row

Consider the scenario where you want to add a new record to a Dataverse Table without doing it manually one by one. In that case, Power Automate can be used to help you add a new row to the Dataverse table whenever an action takes place. Let’s follow the example below to know more details.

Scenario:

Below represents a Dataverse table named IT Issue Resolutions. This custom table has the below fields with various data types. Such as:

  1. Sender = This is the Dataverse Primary Column name with the Text data type
  2. Issues = Single line of text data type
  3. Report Date = Date Data type
  4. Status = Choice Column having some choices like Approved, Rejected, Pending, etc.

Now I want to build a flow where, when a user reports an issue via email, all the issue information is automatically stored in a specific Dataverse table (IT Problem Resolutions). And at the same time, the specific sender will get a success notification once the particular record has been added to the Dataverse Table. To do so, follow the instructions below.
