Powerapp flow send email

Hello,

 

I have a powerapp form that is connected to my Sharepoint list and I want to configure a button to send an email to a new hire personal email. The new hires personal email is listed in the form itself. Though I'm not sure what the formula is for the powerapp email button nor if something is wrong in flow. 

 

Enclosed are what I have made

Re: Powerapp flow send email

Hi @PaulVR13,

 

Step1: You could create your PowerApps' boxes, do not configure the Send Email button.

Step2: Create a Flow with multiple compose actions to accept these values from PowerApps.

Step 4: Add parameters into the Run() function, the number of parameters must be the same as the previous number of Compose action. For example, I used to be two compose writers to receive. In the Run, I can only write two parameters, no more or less.

Hi @PaulVR13 

 

looks like the formula requires a parameter

 

PowerAppsEmailFire.Run(email id string)

 

pass the person email address who needs to receive that email from Flow

Re: Powerapp flow send email

Hi @PaulVR13,

 

In the Run() function, you need to input the parameters, then you needs to create several variables to accept these values from PowerApps.

 

Please have a reference on these screenshots as below:

PowerApps:

Flow:

To make sure it can run successfully, you may need to re-add the Flow into the PowerApp's "Email Fire" button.

 

Please have a try, I hope it can help you.

Re: Powerapp flow send email

Hello @RezaDorrani & @v-litu-msft ,

 

I've tried both of your ideas but I wasn't able to get them to work. Would it be possible for you to show me screenshots that are a bit more specific?

 

I'm looking to use the form to send out emails to new hires. That means that "Personal Email" section will always be changing.  I'm not sure what parameter I need to write for powerapps and flow

 

Thank you both very much in advance.
