Send email with pdf attachment by button So I finally got a report with pdf attachment with pictures working pretty well (thanks for all the help!). Right now it’s just a report on a schedule, with the template start statement <<Start:SELECT(Properties[BlitzKey], true, true)>> and “With These Rows” value in the report set to “only send once”
I need a very similar “report” (probably will be a workflow actually) to be sent by a button in a slideshow. I think that button has to modify a field, which then will actually trigger the workflow. At first this seemed sort of stupid, but then I realized if I used the button/action to increment a “reports sent” column, that’s useful info. If I set up the workflow with a “If this is true” condition something like [_ThisRow_Before].[ReportsSent]<[_ThisRow_After].[ReportsSent], then other row changes won’t trigger the workflow.
Also, I only want to send the current row, which I think entails changing my condition statement for the workflow to a slice including only _ThisRow… I haven’t worked with slices yet.
I’m sort of thinking out loud here, and hoping to check my thinking: is this a reasonable way to go about this? Have I missed something? I haven’t worked with actions or workflows yet either (it’s amazing how far you can get in this platform without knowing anything), so perhaps I’m being unduly cautious. Thanks!
