Sending collection + Comments via report/email

Hi All


Been playing with powerapps and really like what its capable off, in regards to integration with our current sharepoint and flow sites.


But I am stuck at a junction and not sure which is the best approach.


So here is what I want to do in a nutshell.


1. Have a simple tool to take photos, add a name for the photo (from another field)

2. Add a comment to each photo taken and collected

3. Save this photo+photo name+photo comment into a collection

4. Email collection to myself or 3rd party.


Step 1-2 I have manage to do (see image below) and collects in the Collection


Now I have tried to get an email to send with the collection and comments from 3  but I am thinking I might rather want to get this info into a word template that will be almost like a defined report.


So is it possible to export an unknown quantity of photos to a word template? From there I can use flow to PDF the document and email it.

My code for ADD button is:


Collect(Inspection,{Photo:AddMediaWithImage1, Filename: TextInput6})

Inspection is the name of the collection, AddMediaWithImage1 is the my photo/selection box and Textinput6 is my Name of Photo field
