Customize output of Create HTML Table Action

Hello,

I am newbie to flow and power apps.

 

Question

I am looking for ways to customize output of Create HTML Table action.My Customization needs are

  1. Specify which elements from the input data will be included in the html table.
  2. Specify in which element will be the first column......etc
  3. Apply stylesheet/ enhance display of the html table (banded rows,higlighted cells/rows,bolded headers) ..etc

Is there documentation that details what properties are available in each Flow Service/Action with code examples?

 

Problem Context

 

  • Input to Create HTML table action  = JSON Array from Http Request
  • Create HTML Table is used top generate HTML table 
  • Output of Create HTML table is assigned to Email body of Send Email Action

Issue

Create HTML table is pickingup everything in JSON payload and creates a  html table, which is not legible.

 

 

Cheers

Saadu

Hi @saadu,

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

I am afraid currently it is not available for the Create HTML table Action to specify which elements, replace the elements or applying the table stylesheet.

For now the create HTML table Action only have one Advanced option, which is include the include Headers.

For specify elements, we need to do that in the previous Action through the OData Query, such as SQL -Get Rows or SharePoint - Get Items. Please note that not all the Action would support OData Query, and not all OData query function would be supported in the supported Action.

For example, SQL server -Get Rows, would support the Filter query, OrderBy, and the Select Query, but for SharePoint -Get Items, it only support Filter query and the OrderBy.

A thread for reference

Regarding documentation, for Microsoft Flow, well, currently there is not enough documents that could be referenced for each Action, as Microsoft Flow is built on top of Azure Logic App, you may take the corresponding Connector document in Azure Logic App as a reference.

Connectors list

Connections list for Microsoft Flow would redirect you with the available Flow templates, which I don't think is very helpful to understand the connection.

 

Besides, you may consider submit the suggestion for Create HTML table Action as an idea in the Microsoft Flow idea forum:
