I have a PowerApp solution that writes information to a data source for a survey to be sent. I have a Flow that is triggered when a new record is written to the data source. In that flow it sends an e-mail constructed from the data elements of the data source. That all is working as expected.
Question: How do I have the connection to Outlook or Office365 use the credentials of the person running the PowerApp rather than my credentials associated with the shared flow? There is a community of users using the PowerApp but all the survey e-mails appear to be coming from me rather than the PowerApp user.
Having the connection to Outlook or Office365 use the credentials of the person running the PowerApp rather than my credentials associated with the shared flow is not supported in microsoft flow currently.
The connection account always the creator or the flow,so the survey e-mails appear to be coming from the creator of the flow rather than the PowerApp user.
If you want the survey e-mails to be coming from the PowerApp user,
I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.
If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
Hi Alice -
To give a bit of context for the use of this feature - as a CSM we conduct various workshops with our customers - these workshops include various standard surveys that are used. This PowerApp is removing the administrivia activities of sending them out and gathering the results by automating them from within a facilitation page within the PowerApp. The CSM (user) pulls up the survey page and click the 'Send Survey' button for each of the participants while in the workshop session - the participants complete the survey and the use clicks a 'refresh' button on the PowerApp form to display the results in real-time. This is why I would like for the outbound e-mail to be send from the user(CSM).
The process is as follows:
This entire function uses a global FLOW as well as a global FORM - the intent is that the user facilitates the session and doesn't touch the underlying technology.
Please let me know if that makes any sense -
