Multiline field displays as single line in a mail send by flow

Hello,

 

I have a flow that sends an email on creation of a new sharepoint list item.

In this list i have multiline fields, when i add the dynamic content of a multiline field it places the content on a single line in the email.

 

So if the value of "Adres" is:

Straatnaam 1
6677 AA
Plaats

It wil be displayed in the e-mail as

Straatnaam 1 6677 AA Plaats

 

 

How can i change this?

 

regards

Hi @RD,

 

You could set up Send an email-IS HTML.

If you do not select any options or select No, the message content will be displayed like this:

If you choose Yes, the message content will be displayed like this:

Please take a try.

@RD:

 

I just ran a quick test and found that I can reproduce your issue if I set "Is HTML" to yes in the email action.  If you set it to No, that should resolve the issue.  You can access this setting by clicking on Advanced Properties in the email action.

 

If this solves your problem, please mark your post as Solved.

Re: Multiline field displays as single line in a mail send by flow

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

 

What if I need to use html format?

Is there anyway to do this with HTML mail?

Re: Multiline field displays as single line in a mail send by flow

I recently needed an HTML email that included multi line text from both both sharepoint and a text box within powerapps. I was able to find a solution.

 

Substitute(MyMultiLineTextField,Char(10),"<br>")

 

So leaving it as HTML, not plain text, then just converting the new lines to html breaks.
