Send Approval Email Body Formating

Hi,

We want to approve sharepoint items so I created a flow and add records to mail body but it does not recoginse paragraphs and spaces. It is creating a big one paragraph sentence, so it is not user friendly and looks very bad. How can I enter paragraphs and make it tidy a little.If I do not enter these then they can not know, what they are approving...! Please check below, what I set up in flow management and how it looks in mail...

Actually I was incorrect, you can use html line breaks to introduce breaks like so

Hi,

 

currently we don't support formatting in the body of the approval mail. I've field a bug to track this.

Hi Raj,

 

Is this action meant to be used by business users? then they can not use it because one of my business users(most of those) will never understand what's </br> and they have to go to developer like me to develop email body for them. Please add formatting otherwise business users can never use it for sure. They can write simple hello world emails thats it.

That's a valid point - most business users would not be familiar with HTML syntax. If Raj has not already filed a bug, I will file one to track this work.

Is there any update on this?Is there any way to format the body of a Flow email yet?

Sorry, not yet. The item to do this better is in our backlog. We are hoping to update this in the coming months.

Please add formatting to the body.  Also, would be nice to format date/time fields as well.

 

Thank you,

Hi @RajRa,

 

While it's nice to be able to add a line break, I'd like to know if we can expect support at least for basic HTML customizations such as bold, font color, style and etc in near future? 

 

Cheers,

Anton

Any updated on this?  </br>'s don't seem to be working still (using azure logic apps)

Its on our list of deliverables, but no timeline yet to support HTML formatting. Can you clarify what you mean by /br's not working yet?

I want to format the body of an email being sent from an Office 365 send email action so that it can be structured with breaks (html </br? between the salutation and the body.. i.e.

 

Hello Sir,

 

How are you doing.

 

Thanks,

I have no way of formatting that, it comes out like:

 

Hello Sir,

How are you doing.

Thanks,

Hi @WiggityZwiggity,

 

I think the extra breaks are introducing by the sharepoint body, I think the simpliest way to fix it is just to not put break after the body, could you try that?

 

Thanks

Yep that fixed it! 🙂

CAn you add the abilit yot format the email with basic HTML formatting. Having users receive an email with no formatting is not very professional and makes using this product unusable except for very basic functions.

The html line breaks just show up as "
" in O365 OWA! But then, when I forward the message, it looks good!

Here's what it looks like when the email goes from Flow to OWA on O365. But it looks good when I forward it to Outlook on my desktop and then it looks good again when I reply back to the owa email address.
