Help! Office365Outlook.SendEmail from Person or Group

Hi, 

 

So I have a Person or Group field in a SharePoint List and a form on a PowerApp. I have a button in the PowerApp that says:

 

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(DataCardValue31.Selected.Email,"Subject", "Body")

 

Simple. Works fine, however, when I select more than one person from the Person or Group field, it only sends it to one email address. I need the email to be sent to all the people I select in this field. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Enriquitio ,

If the output of DataCardValue31 was DataCardValue31.Selected.EMailAddress then

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(
   Concat(
      DataCardValue31.SelectedItems,
      EmailAddress & "; "
   ), 
   "Title goes here",
   "Body goes here"
)

would work. You need to look at the Items of DataCardValue31 to see the field name you need to use. All am doing here is putting a semi-colon ; between the addresses selected (as required by Outlook for sending multiple addresses).

Hi @Enriquitio ,

If you had a combo box to select the email addresses, then you could use the Concat function

Concat(YourComboBoxName.SelectedItems, xxxx & "; ")

where xxxx is Value/Result/Field Name depending on the choices structure and then use the output of this in the To field.

Happy to elaborate further.

OK thanks,

 

I am using the Person or Group column though in my SharePoint List not a choice. I want it so users can access to colleagues within the business? 

 

See attached. 

 

Thanks,

Harry

Would this work then? 

 

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(Concat(DataCardValue31.SelectedItems),"Test", "Test ")

Hi @Enriquitio ,

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(

      EmailAddress & "; "
   ), 
   "Title goes here",
   "Body goes here"

Thanks @WarrenBelz

 

What you send didn't work but this did: 

 

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(
Concat(
DataCardValue31.SelectedItems, Email & "; "
),
"Test",
"Test"
)

 

Thanks,
