SPO Send email with attachments when condition is met

Hello everyone,


I have been trying to create a workflow to send emails with attachments from SharePoint list when condition is met. I have followed the below post "to the T" but it seems to not be working for me.  I was wondering if there is a work arround for making this happend.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi @jgchavez1025 ,


Please share your flow and description of the problem you are experiencing. Is there an error message?

@ekarim2020 , Here are the error and flow screenshots. I tested it by removing the string variable from the attachments on the email and it worked, but of course I am trying to send the attachments as well. Thanks!

@jgchavez1025 : What error are you getting when you try the $content option? Thanks.

The error message is asking for values for the To, Subject and Body. 


TEST: Try hard coding an email address,  subject text and some text into the body of the Send an email action and retest. Also check that the data columns from the trigger (When an item is modified) contain valid values and are not empty or bank.
