Extract text from the body of an email

Hello,

 

I am trying to bring in the body of an email to put into an approval. I have the flow build so far and it works, but the body of the email isnt coming through properly. It comes through in html script and I just want the text.

 

Below is how the flow looks, then the body of the original email, and then the actual output.

There is an HTML to Text action that you can use to strip the HTML out of the email Body before you insert it into the Approval.  Approval Bodies don't support HTML formating.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You could refer to @Pstork1 's solution to add a "Html to text" action as screenshot below to achieve your needs:

Or you could insert the "Body Preview" Dynamic content instead of the "Body" dynamic content in the "Details" column as below:

Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

 

Best regards,
