Unable to insert clickable URL in Teams post from Flow Bot

If I use the old "Post to Teams Channel" action, I can wrap a url in the <a href="http://blahblah">Click here</a> html code, but I cannot @ a user using the new <at></at>


So I am using the posting as a flow bot. It does the @ correctly, but the HTML is ignored and it just posts the URL as an unclickable length of text. Even if I am using dynamic data from a Power BI connector, which provides a Tile URL, even that gets expanded into 3-4 lines of text.

Any ideas?

Have you checked the Formatting text content in the Microsof Teams API documentation? Specifically the Examples of text formatting, which mentions hyperlink formatting:

Nope. Didn't work. Posted the entire thing as plain text. Smiley Sad

I'm having the exact same issue!



I added it as an idea here with the tag bug. This seems to be a bug given it converts dynamic content urls added to a flow to plain text. Please vote for it. If there is another place to post about bugs, please let me know.

I assume Microsoft have fixed it because adding the link with the <a href=""....etc in the flow now creates a clickable link in the Teams channel for me.

Thanks @RobElliott . I'll go back to some of my flows and test this out.

Thnk you @Brad_Groux 

This worked for me.

However we will need to put it in the Text Box of the JSON like this:


"type": "TextBlock",
"spacing": "None",
"text": "[text](link)"

Thanks @RobElliott 
I was able to create the link as illustrated and now have a direct link to a new Planner task. I used concat to build the url to the Planner task.

For me markdown works fine.

Hi Ed! I noticed your screenshot had a space between [The Text](The Link). There cannot be a space between the brackets and the parenthesis. 

Work like a charm. Thank you Brad. Now I can insert link inside Flow bot to user message.

hello , 


Have you also tested of this works with send a message as flow bot to an user? 


Because i'm trying the same but it gives me plane text. 


I am also using.  Post a message as the Flow bot to a user


I have been unable to get the link to come thru as well.

At the end this works for me:


Be carefull you don’t have Space between the 2 Parts.
