Microsoft Power Automate Tutorial
Email Notification on Form Completion with Flow (using a template)

  • This Power Automate tutorial demonstrates how to send email notifications upon the completion of a form in Microsoft Forms. This technique can also be used to send an email from most of the Office 365 applications when a specific event occurs. Creating a flow from scratch can also be done, but using a template is usually easier.
  1. Click “Create” on the left side of the page.


  2. Go to “Start from a template”.


  3. In the search box, enter “Forms” and click the spyglass (NewSpyglassIcon) or press enter. From the returned results, look for the following template and click it.

  4. At the bottom of the page, click "continue."


  5. Choose the form that needs the email notification from the dropdown list.


  6. Enter the email address where the notification will be sent. You can enter multiple addresses by separating them with a semicolon (;).

  7. When the cursor is put in the text box for the email body, you can enter a static message or choose fields from the form fields list that will pop up.


    • Dynamic field example - press the enter button to separate responses to different lines in the body of the email. Otherwise, the responses will be strung together.


    • Click "Show advanced options" for additional information that can be included.


  8. Click "Save."

  9. After saving you can run a test or click the arrow (FlowExampleArrow) to go to the flow details page. On the details page, you can view the run history, check the connections, and turn the flow off and on. You can also add/delete owners of the flow.
    • Make sure that the flow is switched to "On" in the top right-hand corner of this page.
      When the flow is on the switch will show FlowExampleOffOn.
