Launch Outlook using MailTo via Microsoft Flow/Power Automate

Hi everyone,

 

I have integrated a Power App onto a Power BI Report. The Power App has a button which launches in Outlook.  It currently does not seem possible to launch Outlook from Integrated PowerApp Tile in Power BI (via Launch( "mailto:" ) ).

Does anyone know how I can launch Outlook using MailTo by triggering a Flow instead?

 

best regards,

Ami

Try this :

 

on select of button - Launch("mailto:jiniv@abc.com?cc=xyz@abc.com&subject=Open mail from PowerApps&body=mybody %0D%0A this is second line")

Thanks @jinivthakkar but the problem is not related to launching Outlook from Power Apps - the problem is that the Launch function for opening Outlook from a Power App works in Power Apps Studio, but does not if the Power App is embedded in a Power BI report. This is why I am asking if it is possible to use Flow/Automate instead to trigger Outlook to launch.

@imranamikhan sorry my bad, but as you said even I don't think it is possible to use Flow/Automate istead of trigger Outlook to launch.
