Taking an Outlook email and auto-filling into Sharepoint List RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to figure out a way to set up a rule in my outlook that when certain emails come into outlook, it auto populate a partially filled out workflow into Sharepoint 2010. Is this even possible? If so what would be the best way to make this happen? Thank you!

  • Hi,

    From your description, you would like workflow on SharePoint side to be triggered by new coming emails in Outlook(on Exchange side).

    As workaround, you could create inbox rule for receiving messages and forward them to SharePoint list which has incoming email feature configured. Then create workflow and associate it with items in this list.
