News Update Alert SharePoint

Apologies if this isn't the right place to post this, please direct me to the proper place if it isn't:

 

I have everything built out pretty good in the flow, and it triggers and passes every test, but I'd like to make the alert email that goes out look a alittle nicer, and closer to the "send by email" option that is offered on the SharePoint site itself (pictured below).

However I've not been able to replicate the thumbnail to show for the preview of the post, I have a few properties pulled from dynamic content like "thumbnail large, medium and Small" but they always return as if they don't exist so i'm not sure what they do. 

Does anyone have any ideas on how i can complete this using my flow I have built?

Re: News Update Alert SharePoint

Apologies, I neglected to mention that in my original post, I have a the email coded in HTML and that is how the email gets formatted and sent.  I can post the code if needed, but dont know if it's too relevant.

Hi @koechsle ,

 

In your original post you mentioned "closer to the "send by email" option that is offered on the SharePoint site itself". Could you please explain about this?

 

Also for the preview the option is under outlook  setting.

Re: News Update Alert SharePoint

Apologies for the delay in updating this. I was able to get everything to work except the image preview, the description property made the text preview show up just fine, but whenever I used the banner url (as i had found in my research online) in the HTML code the picture always came up broken for instance:

 

<img src="banner URL link"> would come up as a broken image unless i use the default image that a news post uses (its a gray image that is at the top of the default news page).  I've added a couple pictures that could hopefully explain this a bit better. From what I understand the Banner URL image is supposed to grab the first image file it finds in the post a put it up, is there any truth to that or another way I could go about this?

Hi @koechsle 

 

What's the difference between banner url and default image of news post? Both are different urls? Could you show some examples.

 

Thanks
