Flow email with folder path with spaces

Hello,

I am trying to send an email with a link to a folder. There is a space in the folder name so the email link only contains the first part up to the space.

I have tried to replace the space with %20 but this doesn't seem to work with a folder.

Any other suggestions?

Many thanks for any advice.

Hi @JamesMitchell 

 

Can you share more details on the flow? Are you using sharepoint? If so, you could use th action: create a sharing link and share the link then:dds.PNG

If you are creating the floder within the flow, you could simply use the link to item dynamic attribute. 

 

If this differs, please share a screenshot of your flow so that we might better identify the issue and assist you with this. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hello,

 

Thank you for the reply. I have a sharepoint task list with a column containing a folder path.

 

When the status of the task is modified, i would like to send an email with the folder path within it as a link so when a user recives the email they can click on the link.

 

I am using <a href=file:///FOLDERPATHCOLUMN>FOLDERPATHCOLUMN</a>

 

The folder name for example is 'c:\this is a test' and the email contains a link as c:\this due to the space.

 

Any ideas who i can include folder paths with a space?

 

I am currently sending the email using sharepoint designer flow but I cant change the sent email address from donotreply so am trying to do this in microsoft flow.

 

Thank you

Wow, thank you. That is it. Literally adding " " has solved it.

 

Working: <a href="file:///FOLDERLOCATION">FOLDERLOCATION</a>
