Microsoft Word (Business) connector

Would love the ability to add Rich text to a word document content control which is currently not supported. Can this be added in the near future?

 

I need to add a dynamic html table to a word document but currently it shows the html and does not get converted into rich text.  

 

Thanks!

Yeah it would be really nice if what was entered in one system also is what comes out in the other end:)
That way i wont need to spend additional time everytime i need to pull data from a system into a presentation.

I know this isn't related to the MS connector, but I had some time with one of our developers where we did a little POC on how it can work in word.
The connector is this one by Projectum.

Let me know if you are interested:)

@KaareM,

 

Thanks for the info!! i'll check it out. My current workaround (which has turned out to be a major pain), is the following:

1.) Converted word doc to HTML

2.) used Syncfusion to convert the html to a pdf doc via azure function.

3.) I can call the azure function from flow and insert the table and other info into the html table to produce a pdf.

Here is a little walkthrough of it, i know it is a bit long but it covers the basics.

It should set you up with everything you need including the free trial, but if you have any questions let me know.

If you are just using the HTML to create a table, you can do that using a Word Template and Repeating Section Content Controls. Here is a tutorial on how to do that:
