Post message as the Flow Bot not working as expected

I am using the 'Post message as the Flow Bot' action to post Microsoft Teams 'message body content' to a Teams channel. It works, but the resultant post contains extraneous HTML.

 

If I use 'Post a message' action instead of the flow bot, it works perfectly, but this posts the message as me (which I don't want).

 

Can anyone help?

Is the message body coming from an eMail?  I wonder if that's where the HTML is coming from.

 

Try inserting an interim step, "Convert HTML to Text" and see if that cleans it up.20190503e.PNG

Keep us posted.

Hi Ed,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. 

 

 

The message body is coming from an email in HTML as you guessed. I can't convert to plain text as I need to keep the HTML for the formatting. The problem is that the Flow Bot is not interpreting the HTML correctly. When I post using the Flow Bot, I get the result below:-

However, when I use flow to post the message as myself, it works perfectly. See below:-

Thanks again for any advice you can give.

@DoowopDobbo  Did you find a workaround for this? I am having the same problem

Unfortunately not, sorry! I think it's a bug that will get resolved in its own time.
