Send ImageGroup

Hello there,

 

I have a PowerApp where it shows a postcard.

The ideia of this app is for the user, in the back-end, add all the labels they want and text, and then send an email to another user, exactly how it shows in the screen. 

The problem is, if I use HTML, I will never be able to achieve what I want because Outlook HTML doesn't support basic funcionalities like position.

Is there a way, inside PowerApps, to take a screenshot of the screen, and send it as a file to another user?

 

I hope I made myself clear.

Thank you.

Hi @Field ,

If you do not want to capture the screenshot using local Screenshot Tool manually, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

According to this scenario, I think the Html code may be the only solution for your scenario.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi @Field ,

Do you want to capture the screenshot of current screen, and then send it as file to another user?

 

If you want to capture the screenshot of current screen, and then send it as file to another user, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

Currently, within PowerApps, there is no function or way supported to capture the screenshot of current screen. As an alternative solution, you could consider use Screenshot tool in your PC or Mobile device to capture the screenshot of current screen firstly, then add a "Add Picture" control within your app to upload/attach the captured screenshot of current screen. After that, you could use the the following formula to send an email to another user along with a image file as attachments:3.JPG

Set the OnSelect property of the "Send Email" button to following formula:

Office365.SendEmailV2(
"Test3@email.com", /* <-- Type the email address of your another user here */
"Current Work Status",
"More details about current work status, please check the attached image file!",
{
Attachments: Table({Name: "Screenshot.jpg", ContentBytes: UploadedImage1.Image, '@odata.type':""})
}
)

Note: Reference the uploaded image from the "Add Picture" control using the UploadedImage1.Image formula.

 

More details about sending an email along wing an attachment, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/connections/connection-office365-outloo...

 

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Hi @v-xida-msft,

 

I am well aware that I can't screenshot the powerapp, and the solution provided doesn't help me a lot because the ideia is to use and send. Printscreen manually would make things complicated, which is something the user do not want.

 

I know Outlook in terms of HTML is really week, that's why I wanted to check if there are any other solutions.
