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 agree on the formatting issue.
I have an additional problem – I can produce things like tax receipts for each individual, but I cannot send them via e-mail. This was one of the specific functionalities that I upgraded to get. (May not keep the Pro Account as a result.)
It bothers me that AirTable does not respond at all to most of the requests in this forum. It leaves a poor impression.
Can anybody tell me how to put unsubscribe link of sendgrid below ?
I am currently on a 14.95 USD (base price) plan that allows emails to be sent via API,.
I am able to use it on block but how to give my users unsubscribe option?
Would love to see this added! Trying out my first use of the Sendgrid block today and was surprised to see this is not an option. My use case is to send a quick update email to all the students at our (new-ish) online school and the plain text makes us seem not very credible. HTML could help, but also formatting in general and ability to upload our school logo would go a long way.
I agree 100% with all of this. If we could format in HTML or just use a pre-made Sendgrid Template that we then just drop in the reference fields, that would be amazing. Plain Text just doesn’t look professional.
