Send an Outlook Business Card with flow

Hello from a Flow newbie.

 

I have a requirement to send a Business Card from Outlook via Flow.

Is this possible and can someone please point me in the right direction to achieve this?

Hi there!  Welcome!

So...the card you want to send... the same one every time?  Or will it change based on the trigger?  What is the trigger, btw?

Planning to have it trigger on create of a lead in d365.

Not sure if it will be just the one card or if it is the card based on the creator of the lead in d365.

Thanks

Ok, I did some digging.  It looks like it's just a vcf, which means you can create a text file with whatever dynamic data you want, then save it with the extension of .vcf and then email that thing wherever you want.  Here's what some sample data looked  like from one of my contacts (in maroon):

 

BEGIN:VCARD
VERSION:2.1
N;LANGUAGE=en-us:
ORG:OC Fire Dispatch
TEL;WORK;VOICE:(714) 573-6500
X-MS-OL-DEFAULT-POSTAL-ADDRESS:0
X-MS-OL-DESIGN;CHARSET=utf-8:<card xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/outlook/12/electronicbusinesscards" ver="1.0" layout="left" bgcolor="ffffff"><img xmlns="" align="fit" area="16" use="cardpicture"/><fld xmlns="" prop="org" align="left" dir="ltr" style="b" color="000000" size="10"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="telwork" align="left" dir="ltr" color="d48d2a" size="8"><label align="right" color="626262">Work</label></fld><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/><fld xmlns="" prop="blank" size="8"/></card>

END:VCARD

 

If you saved one of your contacts (with more information), then open it with a text editor (Notepad), you'll see more fields and can see where to put the dynamic data tags.  I imagine you can also change the layout a bit with an editor, as well.

 

Keep us posted.

Hi @Mr_Mather ,

 

Following the advice of @edgonzales , I did the following test, saving the business card in the Outlook look as a .vcf file and saving it to the SharePoint Library.

 

Finally, it is sent by email. This .vcf file is finally presented as an attachment.
