I am new to sharepoint and learning to use it via youtube videos. I created list with columns. Not I want to send an email when an item is created. I use powerautomate to create workflows.
I want to trigger a flow when an item is created. So, I used "item is created" trigger and an action to send email. While trying to test the workflow, it says "Test by adding new item to sharepoint folder". Are sharepoint folder and sharepoint list different? Anyways I try to add a new item and the workflow keeps loading ending up in a timeout.
I then used the trigger "item or file is modified", this sent the email succesfully.
I then tried using the trigger "item is created or modified". While testing this it says "workflow is ready, test the flow by modifying item". It doesnt say anything about adding item. So, I tried modifying and an email was sent but when I add a new item, no email this time.
I have been breaking my head for the past 3 hours, watching many youtube videos and forums but I cant find the issue.
