MS Form to PDF to Email



I am trying to implement a flow that is triggered when a response is submitted in MS Form. The form is then converted to a PDF which is attached to an email, and sent off to the listed personnel. 


The issue that I am having is the format of the PDF. The current format of the output is in the following image below:

The following image below is the way I would like the formatting to be for this form so that it is readable:

Please let me know what can be done to fix this formatting issue. I have successfully ran this flow multiple times. The only issue is the formatting, I am not sure what I can do to test out different methods of formatting.

Hi @TalhaShaikh 


Use the template Create a file in OneDrive (Business) on Microsoft Forms submission


This will create a file in Onedrive and then convert it to pdf using the one drive action and then email the file

Re: MS Form to PDF to Email



I have structured everything the following way:

I had a failure in the convert file action by the name of "Status Code: 406". Here is the structure of that action:

The other area that I am struggling with is when I want to attach the converted file onto the email. I am unsure how to go about finding the file withing flow. Here is what my email structure looks like:

Any help is appreciated. I am trying to apply this flow to our organizations incident reporting process. Which is why it is important for me to make sure that the format is decent, and that the email of that pdf is sent to key personnel. 


Thank you again for taking to the time to help me on my quest!
