"Link to document" Dynamic Content doesn't post as clickable link in Teams

Hi Folks,

 

Is there a way to post in Teams through a Flow, a clickable URL to a document that resides in SharePoint?

Hello @trishmalloy 

Yes there is!

You can use the Team action "Post a message" and add the Link to item value from the document.

Suggest you to use HTML to enter an anchor element with href="Link to item".

I found that the link button in the Message field is not really useful 🙂

 

Hope this helps you on the way.

Kind regards, John

It doesn't look like you're using HTML from the screen shot you posted?

 

This is how I have things set up.  The URL is posted in Teams, it's just not clickable.

Hello @trishmalloy 

Yes, in my screenshot I did not use a link. I hoped you would use the marked HTML button "</>" to try it yourself 🙂

Now I'm getting "BadRequest" message when I test the flow.  ??

Hello @trishmalloy 

Works perfectly for me!

Please ensure that you have chosen the Channel from the list and not just entered a custom value!

Kind regards, John

@JohnAageAnderse - Thank you.  This did end up working for me today.  Thank you!!
