hope someone can help me.
I have a Quality Assurance Form I made on PowerApps. I have created a flow that generates a PDF Summary of the survey. I can send myself this PDF using the same flow by adding Send an Email (v2) and putting my email in plain text. Now I'm trying to send this email to an email address that is entered in the Quality Assurance Form.
I have tried initiating another variable but I cannot get this to work, I feel like I'm missing a step.
I'm including screenshots of my form, flow structure, and the button OnSelect expression. Please let me know if additional information is needed.
Hi @jesus1 ,
Could you please share a bit more about your issue?
Do you want to pass the email entered in your Quality Assurance Form to your flow?
Firstly, if you want to pass the email entered in your Quality Assurance Form to your flow, you need to specify the argument you want to pass from your app within your flow using "Ask in PowerApps" dynamic content.
Based on the flow screenshot that you peovided, I think your operation is correct. You could specify a argument (just like you mentioned.) within the "Initialize variable 5" action using "Ask in PowerApps" dynamic content:Then within your app, in order to display the additional variable you specified in your flow, please consider remove the flow connection from your app, then re-add a new connection to your flow in your app.
Note: The additional arguments you specified in your flow would not be updated automatically wthin the MakePDF.Run() function. You must remove the existing flow connection in your flow, and re-create a new connection to your flow to update the arguments.
This helped alot!
Now I have one minor problem. When the email comes in it gets flagged as bulk mail by outlook/godaddy.
I'm assumming this is because the content of the pdf is technically html.
Links and other functionaly have been disabled in this message. To turn on functionaly, move this message to the Inbox.
We converted this message into plain text format.
Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachements: xxxxx.pdf
I'm actually considering setting up a rule to allow all emails from my onmicrosoft account, so it doesn't get flag as spam, but I believe there should be a way to resolve this in the flow.
Hi @jesus1 ,
Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.
Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think this issue may be related to the email address you passed from your app to your flow rather than flow itself. Please make sure the email address that you passed from your app to the flow is a safe email.
If you want to set up a rule to allow all emails from my onmicrosoft account within your flow, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow. Please consider set up such rule within your Outlook itself.
Also please consider set the Importance property of the "Send an email (V2)" action in your flow to High, then try it again, check if the issue is solved.
In addition, please also consider remove the "Send an email (V2)" action from your flow, instead, add a "Send an email" action, then try it again, check if the issue is solved.
When creating rules, please consider that you don't have to do this just only for your email address, but for every user that uses the app... According to my knowledge, Flow will send the email using the actual user's account.
