Microsoft Teams: Unordered list markdown in "Post a message as the Flow bot to a user" action block

Hi all

I have tried to apply markdown to show as an unordered list an array when using "Post a message as the Flow bot to a user".

The markup in working fine for the first item of the array, but not for the others

Any suggestions?

Please note adding a 'new line' is a valid workaround

Also note in the example flow I have show just three items in an array, but in my real flow I am using variable length array, taking an output from another action block

 

Thanks!

Re: Microsoft Teams: Unordered list markdown in "Post a message as the Flow bot to a user" action block

What helped me to split line into multiple lines in a message from the action "Post a message as the Flow bot to a user" is to use sequence {Whitespace}{Whitespace}{Enter}. A had an input line in form "Text1<br/>Text2<br/>Text3" and needed to display that as three lines in the message, sent by Flow bot to a user.

 

To do that I introduced a variable newLineCodeForFlowMessage and initialized that with text

  

(Two white spaces with Enter in the end)

 

and then used expression

replace(variables('textualDescription'), '<br/>', variables('newLineCodeForFlowMessage'))

I guess I can do the same, but to use the code to join items in your input array

First of all, thanks for your fast response.

I followed your suggestion, and get in bold the whole array list, but all array items are displayed in the same line, and what I am looking for is for each array item to be displayed in its own line 😞

So reading the link you provided (thanx!), I have also tried to copy paste the table example, but it seems it is not even recognised as Markup Language. I am using Google Chrome.

Can you reproduce this table issue on your side?

Any new suggesting is welcome. If not, I will move from posting to a user to "posting to a channel"

Thanxs again!
