create email draft but allow the user to send

Hi 

 

I am trying to build a flow to notify a user when the task is completed but I don't want to be sent automatically. I want the flow to pop up the email as a draft and the user will click send. 

 

thank you very much for your help!

HI @jo007, there's no action in Flow to do that. You can send an email when the task is completed but it will go automatically and the flow will go from you as the creator of it unless you use a "Send an email notification (v3)" in which case it will go from Microsoft PowerApps and Flow.

The only possible variation is to use a "Start and wait for approval" action when the task is completed and the user is the approver so gets notified that the task is complete. But any subsequent email will still be sent from you or Microsoft PowerApps and Flow.

I am also looking for this flow that could make and email draft and user could send it then, because of a very simple reason : SIGNATURE !! cause when flow sends email, signature is not exist

Sort of out of the box, but it seems you could send the email to yourself, and then simply  "forward" it after you've confirmed the content.

But the email address coming from the data is important, too. From the database it's exactly what it is supposed to be (assuming the right address is in there in the first place).
