Team Flows

Hi all!

So, I implemented a Flow and shared it with two colleagues 10 months ago. This Flow#1 is now displeyed under "Team Flows". It includes Office 365 action SEnd an Email; and no matter who executes this flow; my email address is displayed always as From.

This week, I implemented a new flow and shared it with another collegue. This Flow#2 is also displayed now under "Team Flows". It also includes Office 365 action SEnd an Email; but

in this case the email address of the user executing the flow is the one displayed as From.


According to this thread the expected behaviour is the one obtained in Flow#1: But please note the thread is one year old, so...  has something changed in since then?

Thank you in advance!

Re: Team Flows

Please take a look at the connection for the send email action for Flow#2.  Who does it show for the connection?  You or someone else?

Re: Team Flows

Hi @ ,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?


From the information that you provide, the connection in the "Send an Email" action of Flow#1 is use your account.


Do you mean the Flow#2 would send an email from the user who runs the flow?

Send an email from the user who runs the flow is not supported in microsoft flow currently. The email would only be sent from the connection account which is used in the "Send an email" action.



Please check if the connection account is modified by the user before the user run the flow.


Please let me know if it helps.

Re: Team Flows

@ScottShearer @v-yuazh-msft That's the most intriguing issue: the connector in the "Send an Email" action for both Flow#1 and Flow#2 is my own user. I have tested again some hours ago, and this extrange behaviour persists. 



As you will see, the connector is my user:



The second screenshot is taken from the Outlook GUI in Spanish, "DE" means "From" and "ASUNTO" means "Subject". "FRom" does not correspond to the connector definition. You will also see the Flow editor sent a notification reporting a change in Flow#2, the one executed two minutes later. As you will see Flow#2 was updated by me, and I verified the connector applying is my own user.


I also enclose a High Level view of my flow, if you need the inputs and outputs, please let me know



Thanks for your interest!
