trigger flow from a button in PowerApps - how to populate details?

Hi,

 

I created a button called "Close" in PowerApps. I would like to close the form and trigger a flow when the button is selected.

 

In the flow, i would like to inform the requestor that the request has been closed with some details of the form submitted earlier. The PowerApps is connected to a Sharepoint list. 

 

In the body of the email, how do i add field values into the email body from the SharePoint list  as well as get the requestor email?

What is Sendanemail_to? How do i get the requestor's email or Author email? 

 

Thanks.

Hi Raeville,

 

a) In Flow, set a variable for record_id, and choose the "ask in PowerApps" option.

b) The above will allow you to pass the sharepoint record ID to Flow at the time of calling it.

c) In Flow, you can now use SharePoint\get item, and use the row ID to get the data record you are working with, to get and set information in the data record.

 

Let me know if you don't come right.

Hi @Raeville,

 

Please refer to Start a flow in an app

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/using-logic-flows

 

After have one Ask in PowerApps parameter for each field you inserted in Flow. You will need to assign contents from PowerApps to these 2 parameter. For example, if you want the email To field to be the text you put into the TextInput1 control, and Body field to be the text in the Label1 control, lthen the OnSelect property of the button to trigger the flow should be:

‘FlowName’.Run(TextInput1.Text, Label1.Text)
