Dynamic Content not rendering

I have a scheduled flow which is designed to check once a day for any shifts without people assigned using Shifts for Microsoft Teams. I list shifts, then I check if the open slot count > 0 if yes, I post the following message to the teams channel:



"@General There is an open shift at formatDateTime(@{items('Apply_to_each')?['sharedOpenShift/startDateTime']} , 'dd-mm') is anyone free to cover it?"


However, the message is posting into teams as the literal formula above. Why isn't it rendering the dynamic content. Even if I remove the formatDateTime(), I still get the same result. Screenshot 2020-12-14 at 17.28.13.pngScreenshot 2020-12-14 at 17.28.04.pngScreenshot 2020-12-14 at 17.51.53.png


Hi @itsmelmon 


As you are passing it directly as text in the text block, it is not evaluating the expression. In the Message option for the Post a message as a flow bot to a channel, rewove the expression from the base text and then put the cursor after "shift at" and switch to the expressions and then place the entire thing there after getting rid of the '@' and curly braces. 


Hope this Helps!

However,  it is still rendering the raw text "

@General There is an open shift at @{formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['sharedOpenShift/startDateTime'] , 'dd-mm')} is anyone free to cover it?"

@yashag2255 Just wondering if you had any other advice on this?
