SendEmail sending past/unchanged data

I have a simple, standard form with 3 fields. I'm using Office365.SendEmail to email the form data to a recipient. I have a general question and trouble question:

General Question: I want the email to go to the logged in user. I know how to do this with the Office365 Users connection, but is there a way to pull the logged in user/account/email from the Office365 Email Connector? (This is just to avoid adding overhead and potential data leaks with the User connector.)


Trouble Question. My syntax is below. Everything works well the first time, but the subsequent messages only send data from the first submittal (even though I reset the form and the fields are clear on subsequent submittals). 
Example: On first attempt, I send John Doe for the name and it works. On all subequent attempts, I can send Jane Doe, but it continues with John Doe. It's the same for all 3 fields.

My code:
Office365.SendEmail("", "SubjectText", "Name: "&Name_DataCard2.Default& Char(13) & "Email: "&Email_DataCard2.Default& Char(13) & "Phone: "&Phone_DataCard2.Default) 

I assume the issue is with the .Default, but I tried .text, .value, etc., with no luck. Something obvious I'm sure; any ideas?

Re: SendEmail sending past/unchanged data

Hi @AW 


You can get the current logged in user details through User().Email, this will return the email of current logged in user.
While to send the email with latest data, can you try to modify your formula as:
If you are submitting the edit form before sending the email:
Office365.SendEmail(User().Email, "SubjectText", "Name: "&Form1.LastSubmit.Name& Char(13) & "Email: "&Form1.LastSubmit.Email& Char(13) & "Phone: "&Form1.LastSubmit.Phone
If the form is not submitted first and you just want to send the email with entered values:
Office365.SendEmail(User().Email, "SubjectText", "Name: "&Form1.Updates.Name& Char(13) & "Email: "&Form1.Updates.Email& Char(13) & "Phone: "&Form1.Updates.Phone
Here, Form1 is the name of edit form.


Hope this Helps!
