@pnp/sp/utilities

Through the REST api you are able to call a subset of the SP.Utilities.Utility methods. We have explicitly defined some of these methods and provided a method to call any others in a generic manner. These methods are exposed on pnp.sp.utility and support batching and caching.

sendEmail

This methods allows you to send an email based on the supplied arguments. The method takes a single argument, a plain object defined by the EmailProperties interface (shown below).

EmailProperties

export interface EmailProperties {

    To: string[];
    CC?: string[];
    BCC?: string[];
    Subject: string;
    Body: string;
    AdditionalHeaders?: TypedHash<string>;
    From?: string;
}

Usage

You must define the To, Subject, and Body values - the remaining are optional.

import { sp } from "@pnp/sp";
import "@pnp/sp/sputilities";
import { IEmailProperties } from "@pnp/sp/sputilities";

const emailProps: IEmailProperties = {
    To: ["user@site.com"],
    CC: ["user2@site.com", "user3@site.com"],
    BCC: ["user4@site.com", "user5@site.com"],
    Subject: "This email is about...",
    Body: "Here is the body. <b>It supports html</b>",
    AdditionalHeaders: {
        "content-type": "text/html"
    }
};

await sp.utility.sendEmail(emailProps);
console.log("Email Sent!");

import { sp } from "@pnp/sp";

let addressString: string = await sp.utility.getCurrentUserEmailAddresses();

await sp.utility.sendEmail({
    To: [addressString],
    Subject: "This email is about...",

        "content-type": "text/html"
    },
