I can't attach in email when form response has more than 1 attachment.

With the new feature of attaching a file as a form response, I was able to get responses from my form emailed through flow. Following are images of my process:

This process I got through this post:
https://www.bythedevs.com/post/working-with-files-on-ms-forms-in-ms-power-automate

 

However, this process only works if the user only attaches 1 file to the form per question. If it attaches, for example, 3 images in one question, I can't pull the information from the 3 files in the dynamic content.

 

How can I get these 3 files to attach to my email?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @taisamedina 

 

I think the issue is the way you are adding the attachments to the email

 

When you add an array of attachments you will need to click on the little “T” icon on the right side of the Attachments, then put the Attachment Array variable in the field that comes up

 

Since you have 2 questions with attachments then you will need append the other question to the same attachment array variable

Hi @taisamedina 

The JSON that is returned is actually an array, so you can loop through each of the attachments to create an array of the attachment name and file content

 

I have an article and video showing how to save all of the attachments to a Sharepoint list

However this could be modified to send the attachments by email instead

You can then pass the Attachment Array to the Attachments section in the Send Email

Thank you for your response, but didn't work 😞 I don't know if it's because i have 2 questions with attachments.

I put like you said:

But in the email the file looks like this:
