using dynamic content in expression output

hi,

 

i'm using a flow to send an html email from a trigger in powerapps. i want one section of the email to only show if a certain field in powerapps is not blank. here is the email body:

2018-09-11_12-26-01.png

 

the first expression near the bottom is the one i've having trouble with:

 

 

if(equals(triggerBody()['Sendanemail_Body_6'],string('true')),
'<tr>
<th style="padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;"><div align="left">Resolution:</div></th>
<td style="padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;"><div align="left">@{triggerBody()['Sendanemail_Body_8']}</div></td>
</tr>'
,'')

this is what i want, but it's giving me an error ("The expression is invalid") every time i try to update the expression. how can i use the Sendanemail_Body_8 field in the output here?

 

the second expression is similar, but doesn't use any dynamic content in its output. it works fine:

if(equals(triggerBody()['Sendanemail_Body_7'],string('true')), 
'<tr><th colspan="2" style="padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;">New Attachments</th></tr>'
,'')

Re: using dynamic content in expression output

Hi @cyarbrough,

 

I have made a test on my side and the issue is confirmed on my side.

 

I afraid that use an dynamic content expression in expression output is not supported in microsoft flow currently.

 

Please take a try to just add the dynamic content instead of the expression in the expression output to see if it works:

Best regards,

Re: using dynamic content in expression output

Hi All,

I am trying to add dynamic content with flow, within our school's counseling system. When a student check's in and selects their counselor, when they click submit, I want to trigger an email.

 

In google forms + Sheets, I use "FormMule" to do this.

 

 

I am using "forms for excel" online.

 

Does anyone have any code that I can use. Basically, I want:

 

if (person is selected)_(email "this")


Thanks,
