Help Sending Form in an Email from PowerApps Button

Hi,

 

I am currently creating a PowerApp where a form is filled out by a user and then sent in an email when a button is selected. In the form there is a title (text), location (choice), request (choice), and additional comments (text) section. The button to submit the form and send the email is in a custom data card within the form. So far I can get an email to send when the button is selected but the values and formatting are not working. Below are two methods that I have tried in the button on select field but the values aren't showing in the email and the formatting isn't working. Could someone please give me direction on what I might be doing wrong?

 

First Method (plain email):

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(
    "kkrushinsky@lacrossefootwear.com",
    "Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,
    "<b>Call Number:</b>" & TitleValue.Text & "<b>Location:</b>" & ThisItem.Location.Value & "<b>Request:</b>" & ThisItem.Request.Value & "<p><b>Additional Comments:</b>" & AdditionalCommentsValue.Text,
    {Importance: "High"}
)


Second Method (table format):

Office365Outlook.SendEmail("myemail@gmail.com","Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,"
<table>
  <tr>
    <th><b>Call Number:</b></th>
    <th><b>Location:</b></th>
    <th><b>Request:</b></th>
    <th><b>Additional Comments:</b></th>
  </tr>" & 
  Concat(QualityCallSystem,"<tr>
    <td>" & Title & "</td>
    <td>" & ThisItem.Location.Value & "</td>
    <td>" & ThisItem.Request.Value & "</td>
    <td>" & AdditionalComments & "</td>
  </tr>") & 
"</table>", {Importance:"High"})​

Hi @Anonymous ,

You are missing the HTML parameter - either do this

Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(
    "kkrushinsky@lacrossefootwear.com",
    "Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,
    "<b>Call Number:</b>" & TitleValue.Text & 
   "<b>Location:</b>" & ThisItem.Location.Value & 
   "<b>Request:</b>" & ThisItem.Request.Value & 
   "<p><b>Additional Comments:</b>" & AdditionalCommentsValue.Text & "</p>,
    {Importance: "High"}
)

or this

Office365Outlook.SendEmail(
    "kkrushinsky@lacrossefootwear.com",
    "Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,
    "<b>Call Number:</b>" & TitleValue.Text & 
   "<b>Location:</b>" & ThisItem.Location.Value & 
   "<b>Request:</b>" & ThisItem.Request.Value & 
   "<p><b>Additional Comments:</b>" & AdditionalCommentsValue.Text & "</p>,
    {
       Importance: "High",
       IsHtml:true
    }
)

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think this issue is related to the ThisItem operator.

 

When your Edit form is in New Mode (you are going to enter a new entry), the 

ThisItem.Location.Value

and the

ThisItem.Request.Value

would return blank value in default. So please reference the Location data card value and Request data card value directly from your Edit form without using ThisItem operator.

 

On your side, please consider modify your formula as below:

Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(
    "myemail@gmail.com",
    "Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,
    "<b>Call Number:</b>" & TitleValue.Text & "<p><b>Location:</b>" & 
    LocationComboBox.Selected.Value &       // Modify formula here
    "<p><b>Request:</b>" & 
    RequestComboBox.Selected.Value &        // Modify formula here
    "<p><b>Additional Comments:</b>" & AdditionalCommentsValue.Text,
    {Importance: "High"}
);
SubmitForm(Form1)

Note: The LocationComboBox, and the RequestComboBox represents the ComboBox inside your Gallery, which you pick up the location option and request option from.

 

In addition, you could also consider type your Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2() function within the OnSuccess property of the Edit form as below:

Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(
    "myemail@gmail.com",
    "Quality Support Needed - " & EditForm1.LastSubmit.Title,
    "<b>Call Number:</b>" & 
    EditForm1.LastSubmit.Title & 
    "<p><b>Location:</b>" & 
    EditForm1.LastSubmit.Location.Value &       // Modify formula here
    "<p><b>Request:</b>" & 
    EditForm1.LastSubmit.Request.Value &        // Modify formula here
    "<p><b>Additional Comments:</b>" & EditForm1.LastSubmit.AdditionalCommentsField,
    {Importance: "High"}
);

Set the OnSelect property of the "Submit" button to following:

SubmitForm(Form1)

Hi @Anonymous ,

Based on the formula that you mentioned, I think there is something wrong with it. You have missed "IsHtml" property within your 

Office365Outlook.SendEmail

formula. I agree with @WarrenBelz 's thought almost.

 

For your second formula, please modify it as below:

Office365Outlook.SendEmail("myemail@gmail.com","Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,"
<table>
  <tr>
    <th><b>Call Number:</b></th>
    <th><b>Location:</b></th>
    <th><b>Request:</b></th>
    <th><b>Additional Comments:</b></th>
  </tr>" & 
  Concat(QualityCallSystem,"<tr>
    <td>" & Title & "</td>
    <td>" & ThisItem.Location.Value & "</td>
    <td>" & ThisItem.Request.Value & "</td>
    <td>" & AdditionalComments & "</td>
  </tr>") & 
"</table>", 
           {
             IsHtml: true,      // Add property here to format the HTML Tag you typed in your email body
             Importance: "High"
           }
)​;
SubmitForm(EditForm1)   // Add the SubmitForm function after the Office365Outlook.SendEmail function

Note: Please type the SubmitForm function after the Office365Outlook.SendEmail function, otherwise, the data you collected from your Edit form directly would not show up in your email body.

@v-xida-msft ,

Thank you for confirming (almost) my post.
@Anonymous you are probably better using the V2 of the send email as it detects HTML automatically.

Thank @WarrenBelz  and @v-xida-msft for your suggestions!

 

I went ahead and changed the send email to send email V2 to make things easier. Below is how my code reads. The formatting is correct now but it still doesn't send the values for Location and Request (see attachment). Any ideas on why this isn't working? I think part of the issue is they are choice and it is looking for text but they way I have them set up is in text format.

 

Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(
    "myemail@gmail.com",
    "Quality Support Needed - " & TitleValue.Text,
    "<b>Call Number:</b>" & TitleValue.Text & "<p><b>Location:</b>" & ThisItem.Location.Value & "<p><b>Request:</b>" & ThisItem.Request.Value & "<p><b>Additional Comments:</b>" & AdditionalCommentsValue.Text,
    {Importance: "High"}
);
SubmitForm(Form1)
