Posting to Yammer with a URL in the content

When I post to Yammer from Flow with a URL in the page, I would like it to do the Facebook-style thing of getting a preview of the page. if I type the URL into Yammer manually it does this, however an automated post from Flow into Yammer does not. In the diagram below the PageURL is an encoded absolute URL, if I copy and paste that value manually into a new Yammer post it does render the page image in Facebook style.

Re: Posting to Yammer with a URL in the content

Hi AdamFlint,


I assume that the column “Page URL” should be a Hyperlink column. So I add a Hyperlink column in my list to test this issue.

The flow is triggered by “When an item is created”, followed by the action “Yammer – Post message”, select dynamic content “Page URL” for the Message Text field.

Then when a new item is created, the URL will be posted on Yammer, but no preview image. While if I post the URL manually into the Yammer, it does have a preview image.

I am afraid that currently it has not been supported by flow, please consider to submit a request at Flow Ideas Forum, I will help collect and report it on my side.

Best regards,
Mabel Mao
