email CDS PDF atachments

I have a CDS custom entity that allows attachments which I use to store PDF docs for associated records.

 

In my PowerApps program upon selection of the CDS record, I show the attached PDF doc to user with the PDFViewer control.  I would like to allow the user to send the PDF attachment shown via Email.

 

Is this possible?

 

Many thanks!

Hi @lknudson2 ,

 

Could you please share more about your scenario? Do you want to send Email to current user of the App with attachment of a PDF file which is shown in the PDF reader control when associated record has been selected? Do all users have the O365 Exchange online license?

 

If all users have the O365 Exchange online license, you could use a Office365Outlook.SendEmail method to let user send an Email to itself with the PDF filed attached.

 

I made a test on my side:

 

  1. Add Office365Outlook connector into data sources.
  2. I added a Dropdown Box named Dropdown1 and set its Items to the Entity which holds the PDF files as attachments.
  3. Using the Pdf Viewer Control, and set its Document property to below and the PDF file is shown in the control

 

First(LookUp(EntityName,FieldName=Dropdown1.Selected.FieldName).'{Attachments}').Value

     4. At last, I added a button with its OnSelect set to:

 

Office365Outlook.SendEmailV2(User().Email,"Subject","Body",{Attachments:AddColumns(Dropdown1.Selected.Attachments,"Name", DisplayName, "ContentBytes", Value, "@odata.type", "")})

 

Received an Email with PDF file attachment after clicking the Button:
