Re: Link to Item SharePoint

Hi @NikTan,

 

Do you want to send an email with the item link in the email body when a file is created in SharePoint library?

Have you tried the trigger When a file is created (Properties only)?

I have made the following test with the trigger When a file is created (Properties only), select the dynamic content Link to item in the email body, when I receive the email, the email could be opened by clicking the link.

Re: Link to Item SharePoint

When you test the flow, it should return a 'Body' response after a successful transfer. Look into that response and see if there is a 'Path' returned. If so, you can capture this value and dynamically add it into an email body.

 

If that doesn't work, you can hard code in the base url - "https:://test.sharepoint.com/sites/TestSite/Shared%20Documents/" - then you can dynamically add the folder or file name to the end of the url.

Re: Link to Item SharePoint

I have a similar requirement.  I have a flow that does open the word document successfully in O365 Word online, however, I would like to have the link open the document in Word (Client).  The Document library is set to open in the client by default and when you click on the name in the document library it opens in the client.  I would like the link in the email to do the same.  I contacted MS about this several months ago and they said they were working on a solution but have not heard anything recently was wondering if anyone here might know a solution.

Thanks

Jennifer
