Email Guest users from within the app with no authentication of the connector

I have an app that is shared with guest users. I would like to be able to within the app send an email to the signed in user without requiring them to login upon startup to the email connector. None of the users have an outlook account and using the gmail connector presents a problem, as it asks to give Microsoft permission to read, delete, move emails etc....  I do not want the users to have to sign in upon startup to the connectors. 

 

I would like them to view the app push a button and receive an email from the admin. Example:

 

from: Adminofapp@gmail.com

Subject: Thank you

Body: Thank you for exploring with us.  Respectfully, The Admin Team

 

How can i accomplish this?  This is very important for my project.

The workaround here is to PATCH the email contents to a SharePoint list (To, Subject, Body, CC, etc.).  Then write a Flow in MS Automate that triggers whenever a new record is inserted into that table.  After that, the Flow can be directed to send an email from any email address you wish (I assume you have a generic one setup for companywide notifications).

Hi @Rebeccak ,

 

Nope to best of my knowledge that is not possible you have to provide access that is required.

How would the flow be written though?  You would have to use a connector of some sort right?  Then if you do the user would have to accept  that upon start up. 

Nevermind I understand what you did. I am testing it now to see if I can get it to work. Thank you

You would need to use the SharePoint connector.
