Send an email V2 showing no value from dynamic content (MS lists)

Hello,

 

I am having troubles bulding a flow where I want to send an e-mail (Send an email (V2)) 

 

wherever I use Choice field, it shows, because I can use "value" dynamic content. Dates work as well, but when I want to put something from a column formatted as single line of text then nothing shows in the e-mail.

 

Is there a way to use some workaround for that maybe? I use variables for links and it works.

 

thank you.

 

This is how the flow looks

This is what I get in the email.

OK, so I think I figured out what was wrong.

I feel kind of stupid now for not seeing the obvious.

 

So, I was getting no values for some columns (fields) because I was running flow tests over and over again for the same ID. 

The problem was, that whenever I changed someting in the list and then ran the test the trigger really did not take it as if new item was created and the flow kept sending emails with whatever was filled in the first time I created the item. Anything I did after that wasn't taken into account.

 

It was your suggestion to check trigger flow data in flow history that made me realize what was wrong.

 

than you for that.

 

Have a nice day.

@Piettro13  can you double check by going to list settings and see you dont have any duplicate columns with similar names, also in the flow trigger you can check the data, does these columns have blank value? Also these columns are provide value while creating the item or is there any automation for that?

@Piettro13  you mean that when you add single line of text column to email body, that single line of text value doesnt appear in the email or the whole email body doesnt appear?

Hello Ann,

 

no, it doesn't work when I add dynamic content to the body of the "Send an eamil (V2)"

well, if the dynamic content takes the value from columns formatted as "choice" or "date" it works.

But when I try to put there dynamic content of a column that is formated as i.e. "single line of text" then the e-mail I get shows nothing from that column. So I was thinking this has to do something with the format of the column?

 

Thanks.

@Piettro13  what values does that column have, does that column have any column formatting applied. Additionally can you check in the flow run, expand the Send Email action to see email body value and see what it shows?

Hello Anna,

the column I am refering to has no formatting applied to it. It is a simple "Single line of text".

 

I have checked the flow and it doesn't show any value although the column is definitely populated (ID 63)

This was happening to me as well, and what fixed it was having my email inside a Control: Apply to each. Once my email was inside of this control, the dynamic content came through. It may have something to do with the new designer, can't say for sure but this resolved my issue.

Hi Michael,

In my case it was really my fault. I was running a Test rather than adding new item. Once I added new item to the list the dynamic content came through.

Thanks for your answer all the same.
