Re: Send list Item attachment as email attachment using flow

Hi rizwanmahfooz,

 

Thanks for your feedback. It seems that this feature has not been supported yet.

 

I have seen several related ideas at Flow Ideas Forum, please consider to vote and comment at here:

 

1. Create attachments and list attachments from SharePoint Online List Item

2. Possibility to send attachments of a SharePoint list item as email attachment

Re: Send list Item attachment as email attachment using flow

Thanks for the response, can you please confirm the scenario below

I have a Doc library named 'MyDocs' and inside that a folder named 'FolderA', on which a flow is configured that triggers on file create event.

Now, let say i create a new folder 'FolderA1' inside 'FolderA' and upload some file in 'FolderA1', should it trigger the flow configured against the parent folder.

If not, can you please explain the behavior what it is like that.

Thanks

Hi Rizwan-mahfooz,

 

It seems that we are not able to trigger a flow when a file is uploaded to a sub folder inside a library when the flow is configured against parent library.


I have test this issue on my side by creating a flow which is configured against the parent folder. When I upload a file to the sub folder, the flow cannot be triggered. While it can be triggered successfully when the file is uploaded to the parent library.


As when we configure the flow, we are asked to specify a specific folder, so only when files uploaded to the specific folder can the flow be triggered.

You could also consider to create a new request on this issue, I will help collect it from my side.

Re: Send list Item attachment as email attachment using flow

I got this working using Get attachments and Get attachment content (don't know if these are new actions, but that was pretty straithgforward). Only problem is that if there are multiple attachments, separate email will be send for each attahcment.

Did you manage to open the attachment after it's sent to email. I cannot open PNG image for example. error2.PNGerror1.PNG

Yes I can open the files. I have tested with .jpg, .png and .pdf. Here is how I created it:

Thank you very very much. I did almost the same except that the action Send an email was outside Apply to each 2 box.

Hi Besiana,

 

Can you show how you set up your send mail step and how you referenced the Get Attachment Content step.

 

I cannot get this to work.

 

Thanks

I'll post two screenshots and maybe they can help anyone (I hope that you'll understand because some of the descriptions are not in English)

Thanks Besiana,

 

I was hoping for a solution where the mail step was outside of the apply to each in order to achieve multiple attachments on a single e-mail.

 

For now I have created a step to create a SP folder, store the attachments added to the list item and my mail includes a link to the SP folder for the recipient to view. A bit of permissions management but the best solution I have found so far.

 

Thanks
