Attach file from Email to Planner Task

Hello,

 

I set up Flow to create a task according to the triggers below. You can see that the second step extracts the file attachment from the received email.

 

Question: how to add this extracted file to the Planner Task as attachment?

 

Any advice is welcome

Re: Attach file from Email to Planner Task

Hi @js4 

Have a look here - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Planner-attach-document-from-Outlook-email/idi-p/5004...

Lot's of users requesting this functionality so maybe you could add your thoughts there too.

 

I have tested adding a "Resource Link" and it works with a full path to a file in OneDrive, I.e it attaches a file to the Planner task. Generating that working Url from Onedrive is fairly complex however and I am working on creating this process. I will update this post though when I have it working in it's entirity, but until then I can't see a simple solution.

Re: Attach file from Email to Planner Task

Hi Alan,

 

thank you for the heads up. I checked the solution, it works fine. 🙂 However, it is a bit difficult for me to create such a complex routine inside my Flow. Would you send me the routine template, so I can adapt it and make it work on my side?

Re: Attach file from Email to Planner Task

Is it possible to save the attachment to OneDrive instead?  I am also a beginner and would be very appeciative of a detailed explanation of the solution.

 

thanks in advance for your expertise and help.

Re:When a new entry is created(with attachments) in Cognito Forms, How to add those attachments in planner.

Hi Guys,

 

In MS flow i have created one flow using Cognito Forms. So when a new entry is created in CF(with attachments) the new task will be created in planner. But the attachments are not included in the planner task after the form submission.
