Create a flow which send an email to a custom user

Hi,

I am new to Flow and would like to know if it is possible to create a flow which send an email to a custom user.

Let me explain. I have seen that it is possible to launch a worfklow from a list, by creating a button that triggers it (here is the link : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/column-formatting#create-a...).

I was wondering if it was possible that, at the moment you click on this button, you get a text field area in which you can type the specific adress, and then it send the email.

 

I hope a was clear,

 

Thank you for your help

 

Louis O.

Hi @Anonymous ,

It seems you want to send a email to a specific preson(email address) .

You can add an input with the Manually trigger, and choose the Email.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference.

When you run the flow, it will ask you to enter a email address.

No, once the flow triggers it goes, there is no way to get a box that you can enter a specific email address for it to send the email to.

Thank you for your answer.

 

Now i have an other question : if i create a metadata(which is my mail adress) on an item of a list, is it possible to retrieve that metadata so that i can write an email with that specific metadata/email adress ?

I Have tried to use the "get file metadata" action, but right after that, when i create a "send an email action", i cannot find any emails in the "dynamic content" section.

 

Is it really possible to do such thing ?

 

Thank you
