Link to Item in a Teams Post not working

I have an Automated Approval Flow that is triggered when a new item is added to a sharepoint folder.  It posts a message in the Teams channel with a link to the item.  This part is working perfectly.

When the document is approved, I create a new file in an Approved folder and delete the original one from the Channel folder.  I then want to post a new message to the Channel Chat with a link to the new file.  I used the same code (but with the Link to Item being the new file), but this doesn't create a link in the channel post.

From the new Create File (in the Approved Folder) there is no option for Link to Item, so I am using the Link to Item from the Update Properties (which follows the create file in the approved folder)

This is what appears in the Channel Chat, not a link to the item, just the address.

Anybody know how to insert a link to the new item?

Hi!

You need to switch into HTML mode

Happened to me some time ago, spent a whole morning trying to figure out what was happening😅

Thanks @efialttes I would never have found that!

Many thanks for this, I've got mine working now. I found its best to keep the message in HTML mode when saving the Flow, as I found switching back to "normal" mode and then saving corrupted the HTML.

Indeed, saving in normal mode corrupts the HTML! Is this a known bug? @efialttes

Is there a bug to upvote so we don't keep corrupting hte message?
