Shorten URL and Send Email

Hello!

 

Guys, is there a way to shorten an URL in "send email v2"?

 

I've tried the html (<a href="Link">Click Here to View Item</a>) but it gives me the image below

Of Course!

 

This is the email I'm getting with the horrible URL from the flow I've created:

This is the send email flow:

(The replace function is just for the URL to open directly in the edit mode.)

Hi @Daniiies12 , 

Is it an option to make a "Click Here" so that the URL is hidden and they click to go to it? That is the common approach (see here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Power-Automate/Shorten-SharePoint-URL-link/td-p/479508 ) 


Or, if a shortened URL is what you really want, you can use Bitly. https://powerautomate.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/details/shared_bitly/bitly/ - it's free, you can connect it easily through a few different ways. I just tried it out for the first time, and bitlinked the post from earlier:

Hello Rhiassuring! 

Yes! My intention is to have the "click here" link. But as a said before, I've tried the html approach mentioned in the first link you suggested, but it didn't work.
