I'm extremely stuck. First Day with PowerApps/Flow and I don't understand it. None of the tutorials have helped.
Essentially, I've created a Form for our receptionists to fill out.
One of the fields on the form asks who the customer called for and what message was left, they may put in JohnSmith@x.com as a result.
The form data then pulls to a sharepoint list in the flow.
From there, I then need to Email JohnSmith@x.com with the Message Details.
I can't locate how to add this to my current flow, and I have over 150 different users in the organisation, therefore a drop down list is out of the question.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Is there any reason why you need to use Flow to send the email? (eg, you want to process the message further or use a specific connector)
If not, you could use an email connector in your PowerApp and send the message directly following your form submission. The formula you would use on your submit button would look something like this...
SubmitForm(EditForm1); Office365.SendEmail(Input_Email.Text, "Email Subject", "Email Body")
Firstly, thanks for the quick response.
I just "assumed flow" would be easiest. Basically need to advise the staff member that Mr B called for "C Reason".
No one in my organisation has ever used Power Apps/Flow, and I'm very much struggling to get my head around any of it. We have two people in our Support Team, but we've been advised automation is required. No ifs/buts. I'll try to get my head around this...
Again, thanks for the quick response, but I'm really getting nowhere with this level of Jargon.
I need an extremely "Dumbed Down" version of how to do this until I get more familiar.
I've scoured the internet for basic instructions but it seems that there are no simple instructions.
The first step is to add an email connector. For the Office365 connector, click View > Datasources. Use the search to find Office365 Outlook and add that to your app.
On your form, click your save button. You'll find an OnSuccess property.
Change the formula for this to:
In the formula above, change ColumnforEmail to the name of your SharePoint column.
Hopefully, that'll take you a bit further.
