Send an email to user with permission in SharePoint

Hi, I have a SharePoint site with folders in a library, each root folder will have unique permission (people from outside of the organization).

How can I add a step in flow, that when a file is created an email will be sent only to the people who have access to the folder?

I have already flow which will trigger when a file is created in the library.

Re: Send an email to user with permission in SharePoint

Hi @MartinKuzmicz,


Do you want to send an email to users who have permission to the folder when a file is created is a folder in sharepoint library?


The function to get the users who have permission to a folder is not supported in microsoft flow currently,

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Re: Send an email to user with permission in SharePoint

What about sending to whom is the folder shared with? I was trying to use this but in the end, it checks the files share with and returned null. The file by default will be shared if is in the folder.

Other solution I was thinking about, if I'll create let say a list with 2 columns, first one the folder name and second an email.

Is it possible then to get the flow to compare the folder from the library with the list and send an email to contact from the list?
