Hi @Shiva506,

 

You can create a Flow to monitor the list once a new item is created. Then use the Send an email action as HTML type. Annotation 2019-10-16 150859.png

I believe it works if I use multiple screen in my powerapps.

 

Here I am using single screen with multiple forms(Galleries, Edit Forms and Display forms) using buttons 

It looks like Tabs view

When app is opened Home, NewRequest, MyRequests, ClosedRequests 

When user click on NewRequest, it will open NewForm , rest will be hide. Similar to this it applies to rest

 

When user submit a request he will get email notification with hyper link button(View More). If user click on the button from email it should redirect to Display form in my powerapps, How to achive this?

Can you please help me in this scenario?

@Shiva506 Have you got a solution for this? I am looking for the same.

Nope. I just get:

<a href="https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename/_layouts/15/listform.aspx?PageType=4&ListId=c7711c9a-50...">click here</a>

 

Yup. Works great. Mmm hmm. Excellent.  NOT.

 

2021 and it's still an issue to create a simple friendly hyperlink????

Use single quotes not double around your links and it works.

If you stumble across this thread and is using this Send an email (V2)  that doesn't have "is HTML" option, just click the </> on the body of email to peak on the codes.

Then add the <a href='(Link to item)'>Click Here</a> just like the image below. It will work perfectly fine. Thanks to these guys Lawrence and Lin Tu for the guidance. God Bless!

Hi @Shiva506 

 

Based on your ask, understood that when a user clicks on a link from an email in outlook client, a particular screen should open in PowerApp

 

You can try as below steps

 

  1. When sending out an email can you also append a query string to the link of PowerApp something like below

 

"https://apps.powerapps.com/play/<GUID_OF_APP>?tenantId=<TENANT_ID>&request_id=123​"

 

  • And when the user clicks on the link from the email and when powerApp loads
    1. check if the check for querystring ref : 
    2. On onstart event in powerapp check for param Param("request_id") and if the value exists take navigate accordingly else you can open the homepage.
      To read the query string refer here 

Snap for ref to read query string
