Post #20 of our Build Flows Faster series covering our new utility actions for Power Automate. Today’s lesson is about removing specified text from a text value in Power Automate with Encodian utility actions.

Our utility actions are targeted at helping you build flows more quickly with less complexity, and they brilliantly only use 0.05 actions from your Encodian Flowr and Vertr subscription allowance. For example, under a standard plan that permits 500 actions per month (uses), you could use the utility actions 10,000 times!

Introducing the ‘Remove Text between Values’ Utility Action

Our ‘Remove Text between Values‘ utility action for Power Automate allows specified text to be removed from a text value by configuring a start and end value.

As with many of our utility actions, there are a myriad of scenarios where you may need to remove text from a text (string) value. Therefore, we’ll focus on how the ‘Remove Text between Values‘ utility action works instead of focusing on a specific scenario.

The trigger

Consider the following basic and manually triggered flow:

The user will be prompted for three values:

  • Text: This is the text value I would like to remove a text value from
  • Start Value: This is the text value I would like to start removal from
  • End Value: This is the text value I would like end removal on

Adding the ‘Remove text between values’ action

Let’s configure the flow to remove the specified text using the values provided and then send the result back within an email.

1. Add the ‘Remove Text between Values‘ utility action

1.a Text: Select the ‘Text‘ property provided by the trigger action

1.b. Start Value: Select the ‘Start Value‘ property provided by the trigger action

2. Add the ‘Send me an email notification‘ action

2.a. Subject: Configure the email subject value as required

2.b. Body: Configure the email body as required, including the ‘Result‘ property provided by the ‘Remove Text between Values‘ utility action
