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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Also in the "create a task" step there is no option to add the attachments, So how to i do that please provide a solution for this one it's so helpful for me.
