how to automate email from excel sheet

Hi, we have a spreadsheet to manage all our client process information. I'd like to automate sending an email including a feedback link when we type the instruction 'send' into a specific  cell. It will need to pick up the client's email from the same row on the sheet.

 

Is this possible? I am an absolute novice here!

 

Many thanks

Hi @M0y4 ,

 

For Excel tables, it's not possible because there is no such trigger and Excel connector cannot recognize cell modifications in the table to automatically fire a flow. But as the alternative, you can use SharePoint list as the data source. So if there is a Choice/Text column, where user has selected or typed in "send", the flow would be triggered on the item being modified and get the Email address to send an Email.

Hi @M0y4 ,

 

You can create a list from Excel table, it's a default feature.
