How to forward text from previous email to use in approval in flow?

Hi there,

 

I've tried using microsoft flow for approval process in my company. The process that I want is to send the information from the body of the incoming email, and then send out to another people for approval. I've set up the flow like this:

 

When a new email arrives > convert hmtl to text > Start and wait for approval 

 

However, when the approver sees the body of the email, it stills showing in alien format (HTML).

 

Any recommendation or suggestion would be appreciated. 

 

Thank You

 

C.

Can you post a screen shot of your Flow?

I just ran a quick test and had no issues.

Thank You very much for your help. Can I also ask if it is possible for me to use normal email approval (like if the approver reply approve, the process goes on) instead of using "start and wait for approval" function in flow? 

 

Thanks
