Send email with PDF attachment

Hi all,

I have build a Flow which sends an email ("Send an email" action) to recipients specified on a SharePoint list. I would  like to attach two PDF files to this email. Is there a way to do this similar to Outlook where you simply select "Attach items"?

 

Thanks,

Anne

Re: Send email with PDF attachment

Hi @anne_danko ,

 

Do you want to send an email with attachments from SharePoint list?

 

I have created a flow likes below for your reference.

 

Add the trigger When an item is created.

 

Initialize variable. Name: Test, Type: Array.

 

Get attachments. Note: select ID from the trigger.

 

Add Apply to each, Get attachment content. Note: select ID for Id from trigger, select Id for File identifier from action Get attachment.

 

Within the apply to each, add action Append to array variable.

Name: Test

Value:

 

{

 “ContentBytes”: body('Get_attachment_content').$content

“Name”: DisplayName

}

 

 

Under the Apply to each, add action send an email. Note: click the button to Switch to input entire array of the attachments field, and select variable Test for it.

 

Images for your reference.

Re: Send email with PDF attachment

Hi Mabel,

Thanks so much for your reply. Unfortunately, however, my scenario is a little different.

 

I would like to send an email (via Flow) to recipients mentioned in a SharePoint list. To this email, I would like to attach a PDF document which is stored on the SharePoint.

 

Could you assist with this as well?

 

Many thanks,

Anne

Re: Send email with PDF attachment

Hi @anne_danko ,

 

How do you want the flow to be triggered?

 

The first scenario could be used if you want to send an email whenever a new item is created.

 

However, if you would like to get all the pdf files stored on the list, please take a try with the following flow.

 

I am using a Condition to check whether the file is a pdf file, as Flow is case sensitive so I have to filter out both .pdf and .PDF.

Re: Send email with PDF attachment

Hi! I have a similar situation where I'm trying to add an attachment to to an email. My scenario is I have a Flow setup with Forms to send an confirmation email to the submitter, I want have an excel spreadsheet attached to that email. The problem I'm having is how to get the excel spreadsheet attached to the email. Do I need to have the excel file stored on sharepoint in order to do this?

 

 

Thanks in advance!
