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.

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.

The SendGrid block now supports HTML! Just check the “Send as HTML” toggle when drafting your message.
