Hi Amit, 

 

 

Can you please clarify what you mean by sending emails to an entire SharePoint group? Also for the send email step is the ask to include an attachment as part of the send email action? This is supported today, just set the Attachments Name, Attachments Content fields in the Send Email action in Flow. 

 

Thanks,

Merwan

Hi Merwan,

 

For example if there is approvers sharepoint group or active directory group with 3 users in it I want to send an email to all 3(like designer workflow). I was able to add attachment so thats good.

Is there any update on the ability to send an email to users in a SharePoint group? I have the same requirement - send an email to all members of a SharePoint group - and would like to add the group name to a SharePoint list column. It will include external users.

 

Thank you.

We only support sending mails to 0365 mail enabled groups, we currenlty don't support sending mails to sharepoint groups

 

@merwan for FYI.

Hi everyone,

 

 

As @RajRa mentioned, we don't have this capability yet. Maybe you could use an Office 365 group instead of a SharePoint group, and send mail to the group mailbox as a workaround? Would that work?

I'm suprised this feature is not available, it seems like one of the most obvious tasks a sharepoint flow would need to use.

Hi all,

 

I am also looking for this... we have a requirement to use groups and send emails to all the people inside. 

We are currently using a workflow (SharePoint designer) which is capable of doing this, but it has a lot of other flaws.

 

Is there any chance of maybe having this developed in the future?

 

Thanks,

That would not work.  Oftentimes SharePoint Groups are created for security inside of a SharePoint site collection.  It is a very popular way to secure content or to create a group that can be interacted with...within SharePoint.  Having a FLOW action that could email a SharePoint Group would be huge!  this is indeed a setback from what we could do with SharePoint Designer workflows.
