Send Email (V2) Preview does not add hyperlinks to email alerts

Hi All,

I haven't created a FLOW in a few weeks and I was SOOOO excited to finally see a true HTML editor in FLOW Smiley Happy  Its wonderful I do not need all HTML formating, but it lost the ability to add a hyperlink without the displaying the full path, causing me to have to bail and go back the original Send Email task and HTML 😞



I always add a link back to the list item in the alert so my users can do everything right from the email.


I added some text and the "Link To Item" Dynamic content, but it displayed as the actaul link nothing freindly to look at.


Please click link to go to the item:

Your system removed the actiual HTML


I the tried to use the "Add a link" from the tool bar but there is no way to put the "Link To Item" in the hyperlink.  


I even went back to the old fashioned way and tried to add <A HREF=></A>.


which results in :

<A HREF="">Please click here to go to the Item</A>


We need a way to create a nice looking Hyperlink in Send Email (V2).

It's almost there keep on working on FLOW!!

Hi there,

if you turn the experimental features on, you'll get an improved expression editor that allows to do this without variables.

Just click on the "Html"-sign: 


then you can edit it like so:

@Imke that is a very good suggestion but I find that HTML edit mode for email composition to be very flaky and unreliable with more complex messages. Are you having better luck with it? The only way I could find to reliably create dynamic URLs within outgoing Flow emails w/ friendly display names was to hack the JSON manifest with FlowStudio. It's a pain in the neck but it works.

Hi @jake ,
I just used it once with a fairly simple example and it worked like described above.
No experience with more complex messages, though.

workaround for creating links in Send an email (V2):

1. Initialize two string Variables: Screenshot 2021-01-24 140721.png

 2. Values: LinkToItem1:

concat('<a href="',triggerOutputs()?['body/{Link}'],'">')

and LinkToItem2


3. in Mail Body build link next:

Its, will open and close a tag and use dynamic content.
