Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

Hi @JC75, we had the same issue here. I dont think it is possible tbh. the only possible way would be some text trickery if the list stores the carriage returns as a character that isnt displayed which you could then use as a line break in the email formatting. I dont think it works this way though...

 

 


We are running into this issue, has anyone found a way to fix this? 

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

In desperate need of a real fix for this issue too... instead of a clunky workaround that does not appear to work for everyone 😞

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

I am also curious about this functionality.  Can someone advise when an update will be made in the system to allow HTML formatting that is similar to the "Send an email (V2)" option?

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

Microsft Flow approval email templates do NOT support HTML at this time.

 

However, they do support lightweight markup called “Markdown”.

 

Markdown Guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/approvals-markdown-support

 

You can do basic stuff like headings, etc. I was unable to get the table example of markdown to work though.

Post anything neat that you come up with here.

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

It's specifically the table template I am looking to incorporate to my approval emails so this is not a suitable solution either, unfortuantely 😞 😞

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

I was able to get some of the formatting to work like the bolding and italics.  Is there any formatting that allows for color to be added to the fonts?

You can insert a JSON expression in place of a <br> to move down to the next line.

 

json('{"NL":"\n"}')?['NL']

Flow approval markdown works perfectly in Outlook Web Access but fails in Outlook 2016 client. Any suggestions why this inconsistency?

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

html line breaks do not seem to work now that this has become power automate.  They were working for microsoft flow.  What is the solution here, because I can't have managers reading an email that looks like goobly **bleep**.  Looks like this problem has been out there for a long time.  <br /> doesn't work </b> doesn't work.  Basic HTML doesn't work.  Please provide a real solution.

 

Thanks!

Use a JSON, perhaps?

 

json('{"NL":"\n"}')?['NL']

@BeverlyF click the code</> button at the top left of the body part of the email and then add your text, columns from the dynamic content and HTML tags. It works very well and is necessary if you are going to anything like add a link or an image into the email.

Re: Send Approval Email Body Formating

Send an email is not the same as "send Approval email" action. This thread is about the Create an Approval flow action only supporting Markdown and not html.

My mistake, it was in the title but not mentioned in the text so I missed it.
