HTML problems in 'Out Of Office Extended' App

I have the extended Out Of Office App installed [ ] and it runs quiet smoothly.
There is 'only' one thing that makes it a little odd.
While processing the absence message you can select various email recipients which are collected via:




ForAll(ThoseToContact; Collect(MessageContacts; {MessageID:id; EmailURL:"<li><a href=mailto:" & Address & ">" & Name & "</a>"; Message: ""}));;
Navigate(CreateContactInfoScreen_1; None)




I understand all selected contacts will be collected and saved as a list element with a clickable mail link

The next screen applies this collection to a message text that should be in html:



UpdateIf(MessageContacts; Message = ""; {Message: " allgemeine Anfragen betreffend </li>"});;
Set(Regarding; Concat(MessageContacts; "<ul>" & EmailURL & Message & "</ul>"));;
Set(InternalMessage;"Sehr geehrte(r) Absender(in),

Ich bin " & Switch(ResponseType;"Allgemein";"außer Haus";"Beruflich";"beruflich bedingt außer Haus";"Urlaub";"im Urlaub";"Persönlich";"aus persönlichen Gründen außer Haus") &
" vom " & Text(StartTime; "[$-en-US]") & " bis zum " & Text(EndTime;"[$-en-US]") &
If(!IsBlank(EmailAccess); " 
und " & Lower(EmailAccess) & " Zugang zu Emails") &
" und ";

". Bitte kontaktieren Sie: " 
& Regarding 
&". Andernfalls werde ich mich so schnell wie möglich mit Ihnen in Kontakt setzen.

Vielen Dank und mit freundlichen Grüßen,

" & User().FullName));;






So far so good. But when it comes to the outpout you see the html tags are NOT interpreted, so no list, no clickable mail-link...:


I have tried various things but have not managed to get a clear and tidy html output.

Any help appreciated

Re: HTML problems in 'Out Of Office Extended' App

Hi @DBG_Wiehl ,

Have you set the IsHtml property to true within the Office365.V2CalendarPostItem() function or the Office365.SendEmail() function?


On your side, please consider remove the Office365 connection from your app, then re-create a new connection to Office 365 Outlook connector.

Note: The Office365 connection has been renamed into Office365Outlook.


On your side, please use the Office365Outlook connection to replace the previous Office 365 connection. Also please make sure that you have set the IsHtml property to true within the Office365Outlook.V2CalendarPostItem() or Office365Outlook.SendEmail() formula.

Re: HTML problems in 'Out Of Office Extended' App

Hi Kris,


thank you very much for your kind reply.
The problem here exists before(!) the mail is sent to a user. In the app itself the 'review' screen shows the html tags without being interpreted as html. The html-text itself is saved in a variable [called 'InternalMessage' resp. 'Regarding'] - maybe anything wrong here?

Best regards
