Add picture to planner task by using Flow

Hi all,

 

I am working on a simple Document workflow.

 

Once a PDF-File is added to a sharepoint folder.

The flow already takes the PDF- creates a PDF/A Version and Pictures from the original PDF (in separate folders)

adds a task to a specific Planner Board (I called it "DMS"), and adds the link to the PDF/A to the new Task.

 

This is working fine and the colleagues appreciate the new way of processing the documents....

 

To get a better overview and I would like to show the picture of the PDFs first page in the Task ... but I did not find any possibility to add the specific picture to the task using flow....

 

Anyone any idea how I can achive that PDF-preview in the task?

 

Alex

Hi @MasterDesaster ,

 

To extract first page from PDFs, you will need a third-party connector:

You can create and save the images in a SP library for future use:

So you can update the newly created task details and attach the image.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @v-jefferni ,

 

thank you for the answer.   The part of creating the picture and saving it to a SP folder for future use ... I have been able to solve already ....

The part I am struggeling with, is how to attach the created picture now to the planner task using flow.

(In a way that the picture is showing up in the overview and gives a preview of the document to work with / the attached PDF) 

 

 

Best regards,

Alex
