Creating an Email Event and Flow that uses Email DataLast Updated: 06/07/2018 Introduced in Version: 2.0
An email event is a change in state on an email server, such as when the server receives or relays an email. The system can be configured to handle email events for a email server.
During the setup process, configure the mail server name, and the user name and password of the account with events to handle.
To set up a flow to handle email events, navigate to the folder System > Events, then use the dialog to set up the flow. Once the set up is complete, continue configuring the flow in the Flow Designer so that the event information can be displayed.
We want to select an interval that is not listed, select the Advanced option, click Next, then set up the custom interval.
In this example select Daily Schedule and click Next.
Select the new event from the entity list and click Edit Flow from the entity actions menu.
Create a form and add labels which will identify the information collected from the email event for the selected account or group.
The Email Event data can be found in the form toolbox under Flow Data> email_data. To show any data from the email event such as From or Subject, choose a [create] label (value) data element.
Once you’ve selected each form element needed to create your form, save and close the form. Right click on the form and select the Edit Flow Step.
