Attach the original form when creating new task in Planner from the Form

Hi,

 

I have successfully build the flow from Form to Planner. Now I am wondering if we can attach the original form while creatig the new task using Flow.

 

Best.

Re: Attach the original form when creating new task in Planner from the Form

So, this is fun...  Here's some theory, let me know if you like the idea:

 

If you can add the form response details HTML or some basic text, you can add that to the description of the task, right?

 

The Create a Task action doesn't let you add anything to the description, so you'd have to add a step "Update the task details" and use the "ID" from the "Create a Task" action you already have.

 

Let me know what you think.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Do you want to convert the Form Response to a file output and add it as an attachment to the task?

If so, you can try to convert the Form response into a .doc file by getting the response detail.

Or refer to @edgonzales's  suggestion that adds the response detail to the task details. Here I will show you screenshots of both methods:

Method 1: Add the response detail to the task detail.Annotation 2019-05-24 133304.pngMethod 2: Convert the Form response into a .doc file and store the file in a SharePoint library, then append the link of the file into the task details.

You can have a try with it. If there is any problem, you can post a screenshot of your flow configuration, and we will help you solve it.
