enter image description hereI have requirement to append contact link as url in email action in record trigger flow

  1. I have used Custom label stored as base url like: test.salesforce.com
  2. Created formula: {!$Label.Base_Url}&{!$Record.Id}

working fine but every time when I refresh Sandbox I need to update url in custom label

Please suggest is there any other way instead of hardcoded url.

I can use class email template instead of flow email action to get URL like contact.detailedlink but according to my requirement its not much suitable to use classic email template and send as email alert

  • $Site.BaseUrl instead of $Label.Base_Url, perhaps?

  • Looks like $site global variable not available in flow. @sfdcfox

Sorry for the delay

I created a formula field in the Flow called detailLink and defined as:

LEFT($Api.Enterprise_Server_URL_510, FIND( '/services', $Api.Enterprise_Server_URL_510)) & 

Then, referenced this formula field in the Email action
