In this WTF episode I share how to replicate sending an email using an email template that’s defined in CDS and Dynamics 365. This is functionality we are used to today with classic workflows and I wanted to show how you can achieve this with Power Automate. Credit goes to AK.

There is a constraint with this method, stay tuned for the next WTF episode where I’ll show you how to get past this constraint.

    Hi, thanks for this but it does feel like your videos are kind of hard to follow. e.g how did you get to that "window" at 2:58? Is this a follow up from a previous video? Thanks.

    Is there a way for Power Automate launch that template so users could edit and send with it?

  4. Hi Elaiza, I quite confuse about how to input the right value in "Recipients" and "Regarding" box, for the simple example, I would like to send an email when the user fills in their information in contact form (contact-entity-based).
