SharePoint List - Latest Item in an HTML Email

I am trying to create a flow that will email the latest addition to a list in SharePoint Online.

I can use the built-in flow to send an email but it's formatted terribly and is hard to read. Is it possible to format the email as HTML but still include only the new addition to the list? I have tried using the 'Select' action and then converting it to an HTML table which works fine, however, it includes all items in the list. I only need the newly added item.

 

This is a screenshot of my flow: https://snipboard.io/HswEPJ.jpg

@simonexcel  You want to use the Get Item action, not the Get Items action.

@FoDelement Thanks for your reply. However, if I use Get Item, I have to specify and ID which I don't know because it's a new item. Also, I can no longer create an HTML table using the output from Get Item.

Hi @simonexcel 

 

Replace select with filter

When your using getitems specify order
if latest item is first based on your order then use expression
first(body('Get_items')?['value'])?['ID'] 
if latest item is last based on your order then use expression
last(body('Get_items')?['value'])?['ID'] 
 
After filter action, do the same steps with html and send email
 
Another (better) option
When doing getitems query
Order By - to fetch your records based on latest created or modified
there is an property called top count - set it to 1 - so it will return only 1 item based on your order clause
Then use your code with select and html as is
