In order to take advantage of this functionality there are some requirements

  • PowerAutomate license
  • Admin access to the SharePoint on which the edison365ideas app is installed


  1. Choose the list you want as a trigger point
  2. Choose "Integrate" > "Power Automate" > "Create a flow"
  3. Authorize permissions for the flow > Create Flow
  4. Edit the flow's email action to your specifications

 "To": "@{body('Get_my_profile_(V2)')?['mail']};",

            "Subject": "There's a New Campaign in the Support Ideas Instance!",

            "Body": "Hi @{body('Get_my_profile_(V2)')?['givenName']}, 
A new item was added at @{coalesce(triggerBody()?['Created'],'')} by @{coalesce(triggerBody()?['Author']?['DisplayName'],'someone')}. 
Details: @{coalesce(triggerBody()?['{Name}'],'A SharePoint item')}
<br> <br> <strong> You can add custom content in the body of your PowerAutomate automatic email! </strong>
<font color = blue> -edison365 Support </font>",

Here's me adding a new Campaign in order to trigger the flow:

Here's what the resulting email looks like:

Observe how the <br>, <strong>, and <font color> tags translate to the email
