PowerApps mailto issue from inside a Power BI report

Hi Guys,

 

I have a weird issue.  I want to launch a mailto link from inside a PowerApp embedded inside a Power BI report.  I created a simple PowerApp as a proof of concept and added a button to perform this action:

Launch("mailto:testuser@xyz.com")

This works as expected when testing inside the PowerApps environment and opens up a new draft email window.  However, once I save and publish the PowerApp , when I then try and click the same button inside the embedded PowerApp from within my Power BI report, I immediately get a message saying:

Cannot Open Web Browser
The link is malformed: mailto:testuser@xyz.com

 

Why does the button / link work inside the PowerApps dev environment but fail when published and accessed from within the PowerApps visual embedded within my Power BI report.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Kind regards,

Arlo.

Thanks Steve - that's what I suspected also.  Just needed to share/verify with the community to ensure that I wasn't losing it!  I will raise a support ticket with the Power BI team.  I'll follow up on this thread once I hear back.

 

Thanks for verifying for me.

I could also reproduce the issue, seem PBI doesn't recognize the "mailto" format

I think you could raise a support ticket to MS
