Send an email to specified users or groups as an action in a flow.

Roles and availability

Fields

Field Description
To The main recipients of the email. Enter a list of user email addresses separated by commas or white spaces. You can also drag-and-drop data pills that contain email addresses into the field, such as a User record. For example, if your action involves an incident record and you want to send an email to the group assigned to the incident, drag the [Assignment group] data pill from the data panell.
CC Additional recipients copied on this email. Enter a list of user email addresses separated by commas or white spaces. You can also drag-and-drop data pills that contain email addresses into the field.
BCC Additional recipients of this email, who are visible only to the sender (blind copied). Enter a list of user email addresses separated by commas or white spaces. You can also drag-and-drop data pills that contain email addresses into the field.
Subject Subject of the email. You can enter text or drag-and-drop data pills into the field.
Body The content of the message body. You can enter text or drag-and-drop data pills into the field.
