Populate MS Word Template From FLOW with Rich Text

Hi,

We have a scenario wherein we have a rich text editor in PowerAPPs and we want to populate that text in a predifened MS word template using MS Flow. The rich text editor generates an html in the backend and if we simply populate that in MS word template then we see all the html tags.

If we try to convert the html to text in Flow and then populate then the content looses all its formatting.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.!

Hey @sumitmukund 

 

Currently rich text is not supported for Word Templates in Flow. Source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/wordonlinebusiness/#createfileitem. You can check all teh available features and limitations here. 

 

The rich text feature should be added soon and you can create an idea or upvote similar ones for this here:
