HTML Emails with SendGrid Block


I’m loving the idea of the SendGrid block, but from my experimentation, it appears emails can be sent only as plain text, which is virtually useless. SendGrid’s API makes it very easy to specify emails as HTML. Am I missing an option to send as HTML? This is the difference between a wildly useful tool and one that offers minimal utility.


I’d love to see HTML or markdown formatting available in the SendGrid block. I want to use it to send simple transactional emails, but the inability to make text bold or italic limits the legibility and efficacy of these emails.

I second this motion. Plain text is indeed all but useless. Adding HTML support would unlock an incredible array of possibilities and use cases here. Please add ASAP.
