Hi @JoeAu,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Is the Description field a Multiple lines of text type column in your SharePoint list?


I think the "Html to text" action could achieve your needs, I have created a SharePoint list on my side and the data structure of it as below:18.JPG

Note: The Description column is a Multiple lines of text type column in my SharePoint list.


I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a "When an item is created" trigger, specify Site Address and List Name.
  • Add a "Html to text" action, Content field set to Description dynamic content of the trigger.
  • Add a "Start an approval" action, Details field set to output of the "Html to text" action.

The flow works successfully as below:20.JPG




More details about the "Html to text" action, please check the following article:

Yes. the Description field is a multiple lines type.

The screenshot as below:



I am using your suggestion the "Html to text" action.

I find that if the Description has 2 lines as below:


This is line 1.

This is line 2.


Then, the output is:


This is line 1. This is line 2.


So, do you have any solution to work around?


Thanks so much.
