Using images in Send an Email (V2) from OneDrive and SharePoint Walkthroughs

Let’s start with the results and walkthrough both examples.  Please note my comment in the example emails are directed toward me and not anyone else, but it is true, there are a lot of example code snippets that don’t work so I was excited to get not only one working but both!

In my examples below, I am using a parallel action to compose both the OneDrive and SharePoint options – if you want to learn both continue to build as shown below or just use the left or right side for each option respectively.

On the OneDrive side, we add a compose action and enter the following expression.  Please note this is referencing the OneDrive Get file content using path action and in this example is get_file_content_using_path_2 (see above for clarity if needed).

dataUri(body(‘Get_file_content_using_path_2’))

Next add your Send an email (V2) action.  Switch to html view and type in the example below.  Pay close attention to the img src line highlighted below.  Here we are referencing the dynamic output from our compose step above.

On the SharePoint side, we add a compose action and enter the following expression.  Please note this is referencing the SharePoint Get file content using path action and in this example is get_file_content_using_path (see above for clarity if needed).

outputs(‘Get_file_content_using_path’)?[‘body’][‘$content’]

And here is the send an email (V2) action formatted for the SharePoint item option.  Again, pay particular attention to the img src line and here we are referencing the dynamic output from our compose action created above in the previous step.

In summary, we walked through each action to add an embedded/inline image from OneDrive or SharePoint to a Send an Email (V2) action.  This is a common question on the community board as many people want to include a company logo or other image to their automated emails sent through Power Automate.

I’ve enjoyed sharing this with you and look forward to catching up with you on the next community post.  Always glad to help! Tom
