Upload file to SharePoint from PowerApp and send email with link to this file


I am using this instruction to upload files to SharePoint document library with using a flow. 


And I need to send a link to this file, which I have just uploaded.
I am trying to use Last(Contracts).'Link to item' in email body, but it works time to time, and sometimes it is not last file from my library.
I need to send a link to a file which I have just uploaded.

Use "respond to powerapps" action in your flow and pass the URL back to powerapps.

Hi @ppl ,


in the flow after the "create file" action you could add a Send Mail action. Note sure what you get as a response from "create file" but if there is no URL to the file you probably need to add an action "get file properties" and use the ID from the "create file" response to receive the properties. This action will contain a URL to the document in the response. 


I need to get this link on the next screen in my app after uploading, not in flow, because I need to enter email of the person who must get this link.



Use "respond to powerapps" action in your flow and pass the URL back to powerapps.

As mentioned before you need to add a action "respond to powerapps or flow".  Add a Text Output and name it "urlNewFile" and use the Path responce from the create file action.


In PowerApps you need to call your flow like this

If I am trying to use respond to powerapps there is an error



You can't place a respond to powerapps action in a ForEach Loop. In this case you need to create an aaray variable before the ForEach action. Within the ForEach you need to add the response from create  file to the array.


After the ForEach Loop you add a respond action and pass the array back to powerapps.


What action you mean response from create  file to the array? I made like this and see the same error.

And what value I need to put in Respond To Powerapp value?Screenshot 2020-10-26 171823.png
