We are currently performing extensive email triage on a project and have a need to display the HTML body of the incoming email. The reason plain text is not feasible is that the HTML email body contains information in a tabular format. This information is critical to the user as it contains very specific and relevant information.
Currently, the Document Viewer component does not support the display of HTML documents. The Web Content component is able to display HTML but does not allow this if the source is being served up inline by Appian via a Web API, i.e. "Source may not be an internal Appian source."
We are able to generate a PDF from HTML using the Dynamic Document Generator plugin found on the AppMarket. The translation from HTML to PDF is not perfect however due to "creative" formatting from time to time.
Has anyone else had this or a similar requirement and how did you solve it ( other than using the above mentioned methods )?
