Trouble Adding Custom Message to Google Drive Sharing Notification in App Extension

I am trying to make a Google Drive app extension that grants viewing permissions to a user, and sends them a message along the drive email notification (the one that says “x has shared a file with you”). However, I am having a hard time figuring out how to have the plain body input option to write that text. 

Another option would have been a static dropdown with pre-written messages, but they don't seem to support phrases. Putting spaces between words there just yields a blanket error. I would appreciate help in this matter!

Thank you!

What API endpoint are you using to send this email?

You could try changing all of your spaces to %20, but I’m kind of just guessing without more detail
