Enable accessible email flow


Getting to app feature settings can vary based on the type of app (Unified Interface or the legacy web client) you're using. You might need to adjust the procedural steps in this topic to reflect your app type. See Settings.

Also, we are moving some settings from model-driven apps in Dynamics 365, such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Customer Service, and the Dynamics 365 Admin center to the Power Platform Admin center. See Environment settings are moving.

To improve accessibility when reading and editing email in model-driven apps in Dynamics 365, such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Customer Service, we're introducing an app that provides an accessible email flow. This topic explains how admins can enable this flow and how end users can access it.

For admins: Install the app

Follow these steps to deploy the solution and enable users to use the accessible flow.
