Is there a way to modify the email body that zapier uses? 

I mean, I would like to set up the action with an image, and keep it as a “template”. HTML body seem to not been working for me, or I am doing it wrong. 

Any help is appreciated!

Hey there, @garboleda! Thanks for reaching out in community - we’re glad to have you!

Good news is that’s it’s possible to add HTML in the body of your email! Here’s one more help article referencing how to do that. Specifically I think this may be useful:

To style your email you will need to use HTML. Here's some basic quick start formatting HTML markup:

  • Paragraph: <p> This is a paragraph </p>
  • Links: <a href="">This is a link</a>
  • Images: <img src="imageurl.jpg" alt="alt text" width="104" height="142">
  • Bold: <b>This text is bold</b>
  • Italic: <i>This text is italic</i>

Learn more about writing HTML on W3schools.

If after perusing some of the articles and verifying all looks well in the HTML body field, are you able to elaborate a bit more on specifically what isn’t working? Are you seeing an error message? Is not properly formatted on the recipient’s side or is it sending as plain text?

Sometimes screenshots of the setup for this step in your zap are helpful with troubleshooting. 🙂 

I hope some of this helps and let us know if you have any other questions!
