When HTTP Request is Received - Detect User Who Clicks on Link

I'm sending out some weekly digest emails via flow that pull from our Project Online environment. These emails contain a high level summary of each project, but I have included a link (from a 'When HTTP Request is Received' action) that allows a user to request a more detailed report to get emailed to them (when the user clicks the link in the digest email, it triggers another flow that creates and sends the detailed report).


This workflow works, but requires me to have a fixed email address that the detailed report gets sent to. Ideally, I'd like to be able to detect what user is clicking on the link, and then send the email to the user who clicked the link. I'm assuming this means that I somehow need to be able to pass the user email through the URL, but I can't figure out how I would do that.


Is there a way to achieve this?

Hi @dprjustin,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to pass the email address of the user into the URL when a user click on this link?


If you want to pass the email address of the user into the URL when a user click on this link, 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 Fourm:

Precisely. Thought that maybe since it runs through Azure that I could somehow grab the user account that made the call. Thanks!
