Utilising Flow (and Powerapps) to perform mail merge function with Office Word - new idea

For a complete business workflow solution, the ability for Flow to query a datasource and retrieve a specific record and then use this information to pass into a Microsoft Word template would be of enormous benefit to many businesses.

The resulting document can be saved to SharePoint. emailed, PDFs or stamped / signed.

Can see some powerful applications here in either just Flow and Powerapps.

Is this something we can look forward to as would love to get the ball rolling on this..

Hi @tkeller,

 

You can use Plumsail Documents to generate DOCX or PDF from template. You can apply your own data and send generated documents by email. Some examples for you:

 

Note: It is a paid solution

Thanks for the option of the paid solution however preference is for this to eventually be made available within Powerapps and Flow as a connector.

Very interested in getting this functionality.  How can you claim integration with O365 and not include Word?

This is a really needed integration. The ability to "mail merge like" word documents to be saved/emailed without the need for a paid solution!

This idea was posted in 2017. Any updates please?

 

Thanks

I'm asked for this stuff all the time. Clients want to auto generate a doc/report from an excel file when the new file lands in one drive and then use the content as data for mail merge, they want to save merged content as a doc in OneDrive and email a link.  This seems like it should be a no brainer in Power Automate, so why still not here?
