Hi @Anonymous,

 

I did tested now and it worked for me. The only difference between me and your flow is you got too many parameters. Sendanemail_To_1, Sendanemail_To_2, Sendanemail_To_3, Sendanemail_To_4. Remove the 'Send an email' flow and add again. Drag and drop "Ask in PowerApps" only once and try. It should work.

 

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous,

 

This is what you need.

 

(1) You need a trigger as PowerApps.

(2) Send Email Template. Drag and drop 'Ask in PowerApps' to Send an email Flow 'To' text field.

 

Please see below.

Next in PowerApps link your flow from Actions > Flow menu
