Accessing Outlook mail on iPhone through an app in PowerApps.

Hi,

 

Can we access Outlook mail or any other exsiting apps in our mobile through a PowerApps app?

Say I wanna send a mail if I click on a button in Powerapps the outlook app should open with the "To" field filled,is that possible ?

 

Thanks,

Prachi

hpkeong's suggestion is correct: if you Launch with the mailto: scheme it should launch the default mail client for the computer / device where the program is running. You can also add more parameters, such as the mail subject:

 

    Button.OnSelect = Launch("mailto:" & TextInputRecipient.Text & "&Subject=This is the e-mail subject")

 

However, there's currently a bug in the iOS player that this call is not launching the mail client. Today it will work on Windows and on the Web player (when running on Windows). The product team is investigating this bug to get it fixed for iOS. I don't know the status of the Android player, though.

I believe the URL scheme for Outlook app is "ms-outlook"

 

Can you give the following a shot?

 

Button.OnSelect = "ms-outlook://compose?to=toaddress@email.com&subject=Subject"

 

Let us know if this works

Thanks for your reply but this doesn't seem to work, is there some other work around for this also is it possible to acess other mobile app through a PowerApp app?

Hi

 

You may try this:

 

Button.OnSelect = Launch("mailto:"&TextInput1.Text)

TextInput1.Text is where enter the desired email.

 

This will prompt email apps.

 

Not sure if this meets your need.
