Create an Outlook.com task from email, save attachment to Onedrive, and insert link to attachment in the body of email

I am looking for a flow to do the following:

 

1) If I flag an email, create an Outlook.com tasks with Subject and Due Date = email date. I have this working fine.

 

2) If that email contains an attachment, save the attachment to Onedrive, copy link, and insert that link in task Notes field. This I just can't figure out...

Re: Create an Outlook.com task from email, save attachment to Onedrive, and insert link to attachment in the body of email

The basic logic would be to save the email attachments to OneDrive using the OneDrive Connector, then using a second Flow use the OneDrive connector with the When a file is created trigger. Then add a step for the notes update, which uses the OneDrive Connector SharingLink parameter

Saving email attachments templates:

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.
