Sending email with attachment directly from PowerApp - without the PowerAutomate detour

I have a SharePoint list used as source for a Gallery. One of the fields in the list is a hyperlink to a file located on SharePoint. It has the structure:


In PowerApp I can use Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(...) to send emails with attachments, and I got it working when using a file select control to select files on my computer and populate a collection. 


However, I want to send the file referenced to via the hyperlink, but I cannot figure out how to extract the binary content to put in the ContentBytes field in the collection.


Yes, I have seen an old post (more than a year ago) with a similar issue, but it wasn't solved, so I wonder if anyone has figured it out in the meantime...


Attachments: AddColumns(ClearCollect(AttachmentToSend,
    { ContentBytes:


        Name: ((Gallery2_1.Selected.Title) & " checklist.docx")
), "@odata.type", "")

Hi @KiDy :

I am afraid that if you want to get the content of the specified file in the SharePoint library in a canvas app, you can only use the get file content action in the flow.

Best Regards,
