send email with multiple attachments

I'm trying to send emails from Microsoft Flow with multiple attachments.

 

The Flow connects to a SharePoint library and sends out emails. I need multiple attachments included in those emails.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Nivesh,

 

As the screenshots you have attached, when using the action “Get file content”, we are asked to select a file from the library.
So it is currently not possible to get file content for several files and send an email with multiple attachments.

Hi @nivesh

 

could you explain better what you want to achieve and how SharePoint is used to send the email and its attachments?

 

However, if you do a search, I remember to have written a similar request.

Hi Nivesh,

 

Are you trying to copy the Sharepoint library's file content into the emails?  You can use the Sharepoint connector's action "Get File Content", then use the dynamic content "File content" into the "Send an email" Outlook action.

 

There are several actions on the Sharepoint connector that can help you get the items in the Sharepoint library, depending on whether you want to get a list item, a file, or folder information.

 

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I want to add more than one attachment to an email. The attachments will come from different lists in my site. I've linked you to some images of what I have that works with one attachment.

I having an issue with creating this flow,

 

I have followed the steps provided and it picks up the attachments and attaches to one email, however the attachments are coming through as .bin file type rather than .jpg or .pdf.

 

Not sure if it makes a difference but i am using SMTP email connector.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, 

 

I used two separate sets of "Get File Content" and "Get File Metadata". Then in the email option, they've added room for a second attachement. I don't know how many you can add but it worked well with 2 attachements. 

 

Regards, 


Rachel
