Create file and email the file as attachment

Hi,

 

I have built a flow that outputs the contents of a list item (when it is created) to a word document. The word document gets saved in a dedicated library with the ID as its file name. 

 

I need to email this word document as an attachment to a few persons. I am having challenges with attaching this word document. Below is the sequence i have used to build the flow. 

 

How do I make the newly created file attach to the email?

Can you share a screenshot of your "Send an email" action block details?

Thanx!

Thanks for getting back so quickly. Below is the screenshot but it's blank at the moment because I couldnt figure out how to insert the file as an attachment.

Hi again!

Let's hope this example helps you. It is almost the same scenario you are dealing with except an itermediate step (convert to pdf)
