Enter custom email in Flow

Hey everyone,

 

I try to build a flow which is able to send an email if a file is created in Sharepoint. The problem is, I need a possability to enter a custom email adress because everytime a file is created the email adress can be totally different. 

 

I need something like a popup that asks for the email adress if a file is created.

 

Do you have any idea how to realize?

 

Thanks!

Hey @Anonymous 

 

This is not supported for automated flows. What you can do is, create a new column in the SharePoint library to store the email address of the person this email needs to be sent to and then get the file metadata once the file is crated and get the email address from there. 

 

Else, you can use the for a selected file trigger and when you create a new file in SP, you can select flow and provide the email ID of the user the email needs to be sent to and configure it accordingly. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hey @yashag2255 

 

thanks for the response. Too bad there is no way for automated flows.

 

I wanted to skip the part where the adress has to be stored in SP. It seems this is the way to go.
