Open URL by clicking"selected option" in email with options

I have a flow that sends an email with options.
Selection of the first option updates a SharePoint object, this works just fine. But If the recipient is selecting the second option, I want to open an url in the browser. I cannot find a way to do this. Is it possible?

Re: Open URL by clicking"selected option" in email with options

Hi @MrtnM,

 

You can't as opening a browsser is not a process that can be kicked off from a background process in Flow. Why don't you just include the HTML for a button with a link to the site in your email?

Thanks, I thought that could be the case. When I click the first button, Chrome opens and a thank you-message ("Your answer was registered") is displayed. But this is maybe some special feature?

Yes, adding an HTML button was my second choice, however I don't think I can place this button next to the "real" button, but have to place in in the message text, so it will not look good.

... and by the way, if I create a html "fake" button - I guess the Flow will be marked as unsuccessful after 30 days, since the Flow does not notice the click on the html button?
