Is it possible to create an alert and send it to multiple email ids? That is

When someone writes a comment here enter image description here

An email alert goes out to a few email ids that 'someone has commented'. I tried looking at Microsoft Flow to cater to this need but unfortunately it does not have it.

It's possible to send email to multiple person when comments are added to the page - it is something like workflow or Flow triggers on the SharePoint list - when someone writes a comment on the page it goes and sits in the comment list, so you need to write a flow on the comment hidden list and you can send email to multiple recipients.

Now, the question is how and where can we find this comment hidden list?

Please read the below details thread from Microsoft for that where it has been discussed wisely.

Another approach

Using the Microsoft Flow and graph API we can send emails to multiple recipients when comments are added by following the below steps :

  1. Creating and registering an Office 365 app with access permissions to MS Graph API.
  2. Authentication/Authorization call from MS Flow using custom app credentials from p.1.
  3. Calling MS Graph API from MS Flow using token from p.2.
