Using ‘Choice’ column from SharePoint list as Dynamic Content in “Send an Email’

Hi,

 

I have a Flow;

When an item or file is modified

Condition (Has specific column been modified)

Send an email.

 

In my SharePoint list I have a choice column (and I want that selection to appear in the body of the email.

[Hi, thank you for choosing (choice) company will now commence XYZ]

 

I’ve tried a couple of things with initialise variable/apply to each but can’t get it to work.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Gerard.

Hi @Gerard2 

 

Can you please share the Power Automate and obfuscate anything private that you can't share so that I can have a better understanding of what you're trying to do and the issues.

I don’t really know how to initialise the choice so it appears as plane text inside the body of the email

Hi @Gerard2 

 

In your email you should find the field "<Name of the Choice Column> Value". Something like this:

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?

Yeah it is there - I have put it into the body of the email but when the email sends it shows code instead of the selected choice
