How to modify the "FROM" email address in SharePoint Designer 2017


I have a user who ask how to modify the "FROM" email address in SharePoint Designer 2017. User is doing like a "Client feedback" from workflow... I'm not familiar with SharePoint Designer but I'm sure this is just a setting somewhere that we can change easily. Is someone can guide me?

As far as I know, there is no OOB option to update the from email address. You will have to use Custom Activity or Third Party solution for the same.

It is possible to change the from email address, but it is a web app level setting and not adjustable from SharePoint Designer 2013 (the latest version.)

Good luck...

Sorry but what OOB means?

And as per the referred link above:

"If you want to use the same address in different workflows, just go to Central Administration > Operations > Outgoing E-mail Settings."

This option will change the "From" for all application right?

OOB means "Out of Box"

There are two "From" email settings. One is for the entire farm and additionally each web app has a setting. If the web app setting is blank it will use the farm setting. If the web app has a value, it will override the farm setting.

Hope that helps...

OK thanks for the explanation. Also when you said  it's possible but it is a web app level setting what you mean. Could you explain?
Walter CurtisSharePoint AEDCommented:
The top level setting is called the farm setting. There is a lower level setting that is at the web application level. You can use the web application level setting to apply a from (reply) email address for all of the sites under the web application.

This needs to be done by a farm admin however and cannot be done via SharePoint designer.

Good luck...
