I have a Flow created that will send an email when a Sharepoint item is modified. It works fine except I don't like the way the Link To Item looks in the email.
I'd like to format it just to say Click Here instead of displaying the full link like this:
Is there any way to do that? It would make the email a bit easier to look at.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm having the same issue, but I have tried using the IsHtml = Yes, and formatting as <a href="Link to form">click here</a> but it is ignored. The rest of the html in the email works well (basic paragraphs, lists), its just the formatting of the link...
Anyone got any ideas?
Ah you are initialising a variable. I thought you were adding that link to an HTML formatted email.
Can you try adding that bit of html directly into the email body rather than using the variable.
its just for the link...I have <ul> tags working, <p> tags but the <a href>...thats the headache. I'll look at it again with clear eyes tomorrow, its 1.30am so time to put this away for now....thanks for your help Pieter!
Been getting emails notifying me that this thread has been updated.
Try adding the Dynamic Content item "Link to Item" instead of typing out the url. That worked for me.
Edit - actually now that I look at your issue a little closer, I'm not sure my solution is going to work for you.
Ok, I've come back to this, interesting observation: if the email is sent to an internal email address it works, if the email address is external to my tenant then it doesnt work. Can you try that to see if the same thing happens?
Thanks Lucas, yeah I'm trying to send a link to an external email that contains a link to a form available externally via MS Forms rather than the list item, sorry for hijacking your thread!
Pieter was on to the solution. You have to switch over to HTML view in the flow to insert the line. Took me a little while to figure it out today.
