Hi Sari,

You can get the choices to display a better format by following these steps:

  1. Add the "Set Workflow Variable" action to you workflow and configure it with these options:
    1. Variable = Text variable you created
    2. Value = Configure with these options:
      1. Click "Advanced Lookup"
      2. Equals = List Lookup
      3. Source = Current item
      4. Field = Your choice field in the list
      5. Click the Fx button to the right of Field and select "Choices, Comma Delimited" from the dropdown.
      6. Click the Insert button.
  2. This will result something like iPhone,LG,Windows.
  3. You can clean this up with a Regular Expression to add spaces after the commas and store the result in your Workflow Variable.
  4. Add the Workflow Variable to you email and you should be good.

This worked! Awesome! thanks for the post.
