Send E-Mails with Attachments Weekly with Power Automate

Do you send the latest version of the excel file on which you work with your team to your manager? Spare 10 minutes of your time now and create your own flow with Power Automate and send your e-mails with Excel attachments to your manager automatically every week at any hour your want.

When you want to create a flow, you start off with an action (trigger). The flow we will create needs to be run automatically every week, so we will start the flow with the Recurrence(Schedule) trigger.
*If you want, you can do monthly, daily, hourly controls.

In the next step, we need to indicate the location of the file that we want to send as an attachment to the flow. Thus, we need to add the related connector (for example: OneDrive) to the action flow. This way, the file we want to send with mail attachment will be accessed.

Actions are very short and simple. You can follow the steps below and create the flow quickly.
