Form Report Email, with correct sender

Hello,

I have successfully created a form that a user fills out, then a flow automatically sends the results out to various email recipients, and CC the person who filled out the form.  

 

When Flow Sends out the email, I'd love the "from" field to be the O365 user that filled out the form, rather than the email coming from "Microsoft PowerApps and Flow"......

 

Thanks heaps!

Hi @reidwwall ,

 

Unfortunately, the existing feature that meets your needs in MS Flow is Send as, but as @Gareth1 described, this has a high permission requirement for the owner of the flow, and it involves a lot of users, it seems that this is a tricky situation.

Please check this online doc and see if it helps:

Re: Form Report Email, with correct sender

Hi @reidwall

It sounds like you are using the Send Mail action rather than the Send Email which is an Outlook 365 connector.

The issue is that in order to send as another user, the account which runs the flow needs either send as or send on behalf permissions for the email address it is coming from
