Re: Welcome to the new PowerApps Community Blog!

We have recently migrated entire company from Lotus Notes (ugh) to Office 365 (yeah!). We have only begun to tap into some of the productivity gains with O365, PowerApps and Flow. But one thing we have ran into is something that I hope is not an issue, and only a result of our lack of experience with the tools. When preparing a powerapp to lookup data from a source, we are unable to have choose an action that will send the data to the requestor. User enter their email address and the product ID. The result provides an email address, product ID, and 3 fields of related data for that product ID.

 

We simply want the button to send an email with the results to the email address contained within the results. I have not found a "sendmailto" feature that works in powerapps.

 

   OnSelect=Collect(Collection1, DetailForm1.Current)

 

Can I not add a ;SendemailTo or some similar logic to prepare and send the text from the collection in an email, to the email address that is in the first field of the collection?

 

Can someone help?

There is no built-in "SendEmailTo" function in PowerApps. The good news is, there is a connector that you can use to do that 🙂

 

Assuming that you want to send the email using your Office 365 account, you can add the "Office 365 Outlook" connector (Go to Content -> Data Sources -> New Connection and look for the connector then click Connect). Then you can use the SendEmail function as follows:

Office365.SendEmail(To, Subject, Body)

Hope this helps 🙂
