Get the text from an email instead of the HTML content

We use Yammer groups which are embeded into SharePoint sites.

This provides a nice central point for all Announcements/Discussions which we then embed across a multitude of sites.


I'd love to be able to use Email as a way to give priviledge contributors an easier way to contribute to the respective Yammer Groups.  At this point, while the Flow does it's job and inserts the Body of the email into the Yammer post, it does so as HTML tags, rather than HTML Content.


Please let us choose how to format the body of the email when passing on the email action to another action.

 This works! Thank you @Stephen!


@yoshihirok Don't forget to add the translate text action.


Your Example:


Trigger: When a new e-mail arrrives

Action: HTML to Text (Content = Body)

Action: Translate Text (The Plain text content & Select Language) 

Action: (Whatever else you wanted to do...)

Hi @Anonymous


Yes, Add translate text action, is well.

Plane text can use a lot way.


Post it to other services, like Azure SQL Database
Send it to some notification services, like LINE in japan,
Add it to other services, like Excel, etc.

How can I format an approval email with html as well? I'm trying to show the details of the task to be approved, but it just strings them together with no formatting at all. I at least want to be able to put some line breaks and some bold text to make it easier to read. The ishtml option isn't there.

At the moment, the approvals action only supports plain text. We're investigating adding rich-text support in the near future.

Hi @merwan


Great, the investigating of 'approvals action support rich-text'.

I'm waiting it.

I notice the new approval flow email comes automatically formatted, with new comments pop-up after you've approved or rejected, very nice.

Is there a way to filter out from the actual email body, the email signature? Some people have a lot of stuff after the email body, like signature, title, and some big paragraph about the company. I don't really want that to be saved in the flow, but somehow I can't see how I can filter it out?
