Hi, 

I am new to flow, i am scheduling an email using flow regarding Opportunities in Dynamics 365, i successfully ran the flow but having a problem, it is showing the guid of account related to opportunity instead of account name. Can someone help me how i can display the name of account instead account guid in email body? Any help would be highly appreciable.

Re: Get Account Name instead of Account GUID from Dynamics 365

Hi @WaleedBinAfzal,

 

Please take the following flow configuration for a reference.

 

The flow is triggered by When a record is created in Opportunities.

 

Followed by the action Get record. At here, please select Accounts for the Entity Name field, and for the Item identifier field, select dynamic content Account from the trigger.

 

Note: There is no Account Name dynamic content from the trigger When a record is created in Opportunities.

 

Then the action Send an email. In the Body field, select the Account name from the previous action Get record.

I have tested it on my side and it works fine.

Hi,

 

I don't think there is a way to get the relative entity data directly in flow. But I can recommend you adding a new step to fetch the account data as you have the GUID. And then use the name in the further steps.

 

Let me know your thoughts on this.

Re: Get Account Name instead of Account GUID from Dynamics 365

Hi am having same issue. What am trying to do is simple HTML table with list of records from one entity where Owner field is translated from ID to Full name thru Users entity. I tried the mentioned steps but no luck with list of records as it does a copy for each user. Anybody can help? Thank you

Yes, I was trying to do this on a html template as well so if anyone has an answer here it would be appreciated.  Surely MS you would consider just resolving this and stop showing the GUID and put the name!

How would I get the Accounts to display on an HTML report that is emailed weekly?
