Re: Using Power Automate to send an Adaptive Card-Based Email through Outlook

Greetings @VJR,

 

I wanted to provide a late update.  I was successful in creating a cloud based flow using the "Compose" action into which I pasted the adaptive card template.  Now, I have an adaptive card-based email with a user-specific attachment which seems to be working (which was the goal).  Thanks again for the help!

 

May I ask a related question?  When exploring the formatting of the adaptive card, initially I used the FactSet container to communicate the needed information (which renders well).  Because the FactSet container is somewhat limited in formatting (I do not believe one can adjust the width of the FactSet "title", "value" pairs), I experimented with the "Table" container.  Interestingly, even when using the adaptive card designer (https://adaptivecards.io/designer/), and copying the example card template code (within the Schema Explorer page) for tables (https://adaptivecards.io/explorer/Table.html) into a "New Card" (blank card), the message that is generated reads "[Parse] Unknown element type "Table".  Fallback will be used if present".  I find it interesting that the Schema Explorer code, when directly copied and pasted, does not even render within the adaptive card designer.  As expected, when I tried the Table container within my cloud flow it failed to render.  I believe the reason is due to the host app schema version.  It appears Table containers are only recognized by version 1.5 and yet the Bot Framework Web Chat and Microsoft Teams apps (which have the highest Schema Versions in the "Select host app" list) are only at 1.4.  May I ask if this is an issue you have been exposed to, and if this implies  Tables simply are not capable of being rendered until the host app versions increase (I hope my question makes sense, and my apologies if it doesn't)?

 

The example code from the Table Schema Explorer is:

I am using Power Automate (PA) Desktop to send emails to a variety of staff based on data contained in an Excel file.  To achieve the desired email formatting, I am attempting to use an adaptive card template.  The data for the template is being filled from the previously mentioned excel file.  I am using the 'Send email message through Outlook' action to compose and send the email.  In the "Body" field, I have copied and pasted the JSON template with the defined excel data variables (inside %%):

 Even with the "Body is HTML" slider (within the 'Send email message through Outlook' action) slid to the TRUE position, upon running the flow I find the JSON object is not rendered (the email is blank).  The documentation led me to believe that following the line, "<script type="application/adaptivecard+json">," the following JSON should, in fact, be rendered. Since I am quite new to the power apps and to adaptive cards, my hope is that the error I am making is common and therefore easy to find.  For those of you with experience sending adaptive cards using PA, may I ask if you can spot the syntactic or logical error?

 

Thank you very much for any help in the right direction, and if you need any additional information please feel free to let me know.

Maybe you need <html> tags surrounding everything? 🤷‍♂️

Thanks for the suggestion @Henrik_M !  

 

I added in the opening and closing <html> tags (copied below for completeness), however unfortunately Outlook is not rendering the JSON still.

Still, I most certainly appreciate the suggestion!

Hi @MB-HealthSci 

 

I don't think json can be rendered when html is passed.

You might want to use a json to html converter to find the corresponding html and then modify as per requirement.

 

 

 

I tried converting the json you shared on both these links and was seeing some kind of output. 

PS: I had to remove the <script> tag because again it is html and not Json.

Thank you @VJR for taking the time to look into this!

 

Since I believe the goal to utilize the adaptive card, since after all adaptive cards can include actionable message elements, I am not sure if a pure html email can truly serve the same purpose (perhaps it can, however, my limited understanding is that the cross-platform formatting compatibility adaptive cards deliver, along with the actionable message potential is at least much more difficult to realize with html alone).  

 

Perhaps I am approaching the problem incorrectly.  The goal would be to use Power Automate (PA) to build recipient-specific adaptive cards (using the Excel data) and share that adaptive card through Outlook.  In the "big picture," may I ask if you are aware of how feasible it is to realize the idea this way?   Perhaps Outlook is the wrong PA action.  Perhaps there is another action that is better fit for the construction and dissemination of the adaptive card?  I should say that I have a colleague who was able to render JSON in Outlook using web-based PA.  In her case, she used the "Compose" item and pasted the JSON object into it (followed by utilizing the compose variable within the Outlook message construction).  In PA-Desktop, however, there is no "Compose" item/action.  I have tried pasting the JSON as a "Variable" item, however this attempt failed as well. 

 

Thank you again for taking the time to look into this!

Hi @MB-HealthSci 

 

I have gone through your entire message.

 

- That was my first instinct when I read the original post ie; to use Cloud flows because it has more integration options for adaptive cards. So is there any specific reason that you are using Desktop flows and not Cloud flows?

 

-  If you can print and share what was the input and output of the Compose action, we could think of seeing what are the similar possibilities in PAD.

Thanks again @VJR ,

 

My apologies for the delay.  I have not used cloud flows before, and I am finding it takes more time than expected to learn what feels like a nearly completely different app.  I am struggling to figure out how to reattach my user-specific attachments to my cloud flow, however once I have been able to fully reproduce what I have been able to do with my desktop client flow, I then will venture into the adaptive card territory.  

Again, and again, thank you for your help, and my apologies for the delay (the learning slope of the learning curve is rather steep, and apparently slippery).

Hi @MB-HealthSci , I have moved your post from Desktop flows to cloud flows. But I suggest you close this one and submit a new one here according to your latest situation so that you can get accurate help.

Have a look at the guide here. I believe you need to define a separate <head> and <body> in your HTML. The <script> tag goes into the <head> tag. 

 

I have successfully sent an adaptive card using A Power Automate cloud flow with the "Send Email (v2)" action. You should send the message to yourself to test. If you want to send to another user, you will need to go through additional steps, otherwise the card won't be rendered.

Hi there, I know it's been an age since you posted your question, but I am having a similar problem and I'd love to know how you solved yours. I am trying to put excel data into a table and send an adaptive card (teams not email) however I can't get the info from excel into the card. I have three columns and 12 rows including headers. Column A is text, the next three columns are times hh:mm:ss format.

TUESDAY TIPS are our way of communicating helpful things we've learned or shared that have helped members of the Community. Whether you're just getting started or you're a seasoned pro, Tuesday Tips will help you know where to go, what to look for, and navigate your way through the ever-growing--and ever-changing--world of the Power Platform Community! We cover basics about the Community, provide a few "insider tips" to make your experience even better, and share best practices gleaned from our most active community members and Super Users.   With so many new Community members joining us each week, we'll also review a few of our "best practices" so you know just "how" the Community works, so make sure to watch the News & Announcements each week for the latest and greatest Tuesday Tips!   This Week: All About Subscriptions & Notifications We don't want you to a miss a thing in the Community! The best way to make sure you know what's going on in the News & Announcements, to blogs you follow, or forums and galleries you're interested in is to subscribe! These subscriptions ensure you receive automated messages about the most recent posts and replies. Even better, there are multiple ways you can subscribe to content and boards in the community! (Please note: if you have created an AAD (Azure Active Directory) account you won't be able to receive e-mail notifications.)   Subscribing to a Category  When you're looking at the entire category, select from the Options drop down and choose Subscribe.     You can then choose to Subscribe to all of the boards or select only the boards you want to receive notifications. When you're satisfied with your choices, click Save.     Subscribing to a Topic You can also subscribe to a single topic by clicking Subscribe from the Options drop down menu, while you are viewing the topic or in the General board overview, respectively.     Subscribing to a Label Find the labels at the bottom left of a post.From a particular post with a label, click on the label to filter by that label. This opens a window containing a list of posts with the label you have selected. Click Subscribe.     Note: You can only subscribe to a label at the board level. If you subscribe to a label named 'Copilot' at board #1, it will not automatically subscribe you to an identically named label at board #2. You will have to subscribe twice, once at each board.   Bookmarks Just like you can subscribe to topics and categories, you can also bookmark topics and boards from the same menus! Simply go to the Topic Options drop down menu to bookmark a topic or the Options drop down to bookmark a board. The difference between subscribing and bookmarking is that subscriptions provide you with notifications, whereas bookmarks provide you a static way of easily accessing your favorite boards from the My subscriptions area.   Managing & Viewing Your Subscriptions & Bookmarks To manage your subscriptions, click on your avatar and select My subscriptions from the drop-down menu.     From the Subscriptions & Notifications tab, you can manage your subscriptions, including your e-mail subscription options, your bookmarks, your notification settings, and your email notification format.     You can see a list of all your subscriptions and bookmarks and choose which ones to delete, either individually or in bulk, by checking multiple boxes.     A Note on Following Friends on Mobile Adding someone as a friend or selecting Follow in the mobile view does not allow you to subscribe to their activity feed. You will merely be able to see your friends’ biography, other personal information, or online status, and send messages more quickly by choosing who to send the message to from a list, as opposed to having to search by username.
