Room Booking System

Hi Internet

 

I am trying to build a power app to book rooms using the room resources we already have.

I need users to be able to select the room, time, date, select who needs to know about the booking and any additional information. Then the app books the room in the calendar of the room resource and person booking, then emails the relevant people with the additional information, eg IT department if IT is needed or another department based on what is ticked.

 

I started off with the template which would work great. However I need to be able to send emails and possibly add other features, which I do not think is possible as I cannot find a way to add connectors.  

 

I then went down the route of creating the app from scratch. However I cannot find the connector to pull the room resources. 

 

My questions are:

1. Can the template be modified in the way I need (additional connectors or send emails)?

2. What is the connector needed to pull room resources?

3. Alternative ways to complete the above?

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

You're right, I hadn't noticed it. Thanks 🙂

 

But I think the connectior you need is there already. Is this the template you are using:

Hi,

 

You can send emails directly from powerapps. Add the  Office365Outlook connector and insert a button.

 

OnSelect:

Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(

     someone@company.com,

     "This is the Subject",
     "This is the Body"
)

Hi JD,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

You are correct this is possible and I have done this in other apps I have created. However when using the template there is no ability to add a connector. 

 

Thank you

Hi JD

 

That is the template and emails are possible, thank you!

I'm assuming there is no way to see what connectors are on the template or add more.

 

Thank you
