Multiple Attachments to a Multiple Questions on the Form in MS Power Automate

Dear Experts,

 

Need your helps on my flow created.

I have followed exactly from below great article to trigger email with multiple attachments to a single question on the Form :
https://www.bythedevs.com/post/working-with-files-on-ms-forms-in-ms-power-automate

 

That is working well. However, I have another one more question that asked for attachment where i need that attachment to be include in the email too. For example: My question 2 asked for multiple attachment (This is done) and my question 3 asked for one attachment (Need your help to advise how to include it into email too).  

Appreciate if you guy can help.

Hi @JohnLim96 ,

 

You could add a parallel branch below Initialize variable action to add the file contains in another question to the array variable.

You could move the Parse JSON action below Initialize variable action.

 

In another branch, use similar steps to parse the attachments contained in another question, and then get the file content and append it to the same array variable. Only one array variable is needed.

Hope this helps.

Dear Barry,

 

Thank you for trying to help. I have followed your steps and come with error 400 on "Send an email step" : No input parameters provided. Please provide required input parameters 'To', 'Subject' and 'Body'.

InkedInkedscreencapture-us-flow-microsoft-manage-environments-Default-94c3e67c-9e2d-4800-a6b7-635d97882165-flows-e9143f47-db1a-4b1d-84a6-07e4e01d1cbd-2020-05-26-15_02_58_LI.jpgI am new to Power Automate and not sure if I get you well. Would like to seek for your further advice if I have missed anything on Parse JSON or Append to array variable steps.

To add on, the added parallel flow are tagged with "2", perhaps it's right: 

Body (From Apply to each 2)

{body('Parse_JSON_2')}

 

Name (From Get file content using path 2)

items('Apply_to_each_2')['name']


Append to array variable 2

{
"Name": "@{items('Apply_to_each_2')['name']}",
"ContentBytes": @{body('Get_file_content_using_path_2')}
}

My current flow as per below:

Thank you Barry. The article you shared is perfect!!

 

Hi everyone,

I have changed my Append to Array Variable to below and now it is worked:

{
"name": "@{items('Apply_to_each_2')['name']}",
"content": @{body('Get_file_content_using_Path_2')['$content']}
}
