Power Apps is great for allowing users to create new records that get submitted to a data source. A question I normally receive after someone learns how to use Power Apps is "Can I send or receive emails after a record has been created?" The answer is a resounding yes.
There are a few different ways to send emails through Power Apps, but I want to showcase how you can set up an automatic email process through Power Automate that is connected to the same data source that your app is connected to.
In this first video, I am going to showcase the basic method of how to send an email after a record has been created. Depending upon the data source you may need to make a few modifications to the basics. I will troubleshoot first how to change the display of a date value that you have stored and are reporting over.
Keep a lookout for my next blog/video where I will show how to deal with the pesky issue of having a lookup column being used to report over in your email as well as how to make this email process dynamic if your email addresses are not stored on the table where you are inserting the record.
