Recepient of an email/approval/ etc. can no longer be defined via a variable

Since last week, the "send email" connector for Outlook 365 has become unusable for me and so have most of the flow that i have planned to implement.

 

What has changed? It is no longer possible for me to put a variable into the "to" or "CC" field. This means I can no longer send emails e.g. to the submitter of a MS Forms form or to persons within a Excel table. Now, i can just enter the email adresses manually during the design process. The popup window with the variable selection does no longer appear when i put the cursor in these fields.

 

Existing flows do still work, but every new flow prevents me from putting variables into the to-field. Is this intentionally? Is the idea to prevent data loss (i still can enter external email-adresses manually anyway)? Will this feature return as a premium connector (do not even dare Microsoft!)? Can the system admin change this behavior? Why is there no information about that change?

 

Btw., the same applies to approval connectors, appointments etc. too.

Hi @sachsie ,

 

You could switch to advanced mode if you want to use the dynamic content in the To field:

When insert a non company email into the To box click on the two small arrows to the boxes top right.  This gives you that capability to type or paste that email in.
