Designer Workflow Email Format

  Asked By: Aiesha    Date: Apr 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5525

Is it possible to use HTML inside an email that SharePoint Designer
sends during workflow? I have tried to just put in html tags, but maybe
cdata is the answer?

Nevermind. Simple html  works inside  the email  message. I added the
<html> tag to it.

<table border=1>

Which works.

Glad you figured it out. If you were to have done this
programmatically you could have used the Mail and SmtpClient classes
in System.Net. In the Mail object you MUST set the IsBodyHmtl
property to true. Below is exactly what this would look like.

Not quite certain you'd be able to do that inside  of SPD WF though...

How bout them Buckeyes?

Ok, figured out that simple HTML works. Next problem: I have a column
in my list called "Requested By" that is a name column. In SharePoint
it displays the username, but in designer  it is displaying
domain\userlogin. I believe this is because sharepoint  is using a SID
and Designer doesn't resolve it to the username. Is there anyway I
can display the username (ex: "Mike Smith", instead of domain\MikeSm)
in Designer?
