I've created a request form using a custom list. And I also have added a three-state workflow to send an email after a new item has been created in the list. For now, I can only send the email to the requester and also another one user. My problem is, I need to send the email to a group of users who is the administrator of the page.

I can't use Sharepoint Designer or MS InfoPath due to permissions are not granted.

How can I do that? Is it possible?

You can ask admin to create security group and send email through SharePoint send email utility. However, If you again want to send email to a outlook DL without using GraphAPI or Outlook APIs then you can trigger a HTTP trigger flow from your sharepoint page and send all Email, Body, Subject as payload and then use O365 outlook action in flow.


As a workaround, you could set alert in the list to remind the administrator of the page that there is a new item added in the list.

enter image description here

  • I got this error when I try to send an alert ; "You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items." How can I solve this? Nov 23, 2020 at 6:00
  • Go to List Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Set Read access as "Read all items". Nov 27, 2020 at 7:41
