Add a link to document library folder in an email generated by flow

I am using "create new folder" to create a string variable named FolderPath.

When I use "send an email" and add dynamic content - "Link to item" , it shows the link but I am unable to click on it to take me to the folder path.

If I paste the text of the link as a URL in a browser, it takes me to the correct location but there are no files showing in the folder.

I tried to use HTML - <p><a href="Link to item'><a/> the link does not show in the email messages.

How can I accomplish this ?

Hi there, 

 

Just to check - you said "<a href="Link to item'><a/>" - but you mean <a href="Link to item'>CLICK HERE<a/>, right? The <a> parts just define what the text/image will go to - the part inbetween the <> and </> says what will be shown to click on.

Second, try out "Folder Path" for your dynamic content, and you will want to put your site before it, ie, https://tenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/intranet/

 

That should do it for you!

 

Cheers,

Thanks, I did have the syntax wrong and I had to use my dynamic content for the folder path in order to se the files in the folder. "Link to item" would not work.
