Sending email address to power automate

Hi All,


I wonder if you can help me out,


I have an app that sends a collection to an email address using flow, I have that all working fine, however...


I am struggling to work out how the user can select who to send the email to. Ie, I have a dropdown in Powerapps where the user can select who they want to send the email to, but don't know a way to get that email address into flow?


Any help appreciated.

I'm assuming the Flow is triggered using a manual trigger from Power Apps.  If so you can add a variable or a compose at the beginning of the flow just after the trigger and insert the Ask In Power Apps dynamic content into that.  That will create a parameter that you can supply inside the Run() function for the flow in Power apps.  Please Note: if you are already using the flow in Power Apps make sure to remove it and re-add it after adding the parameter.  Otherwise Power Apps won't know the parameter is there.

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
