Create task in planne from teams message (automatic)

Hi there,

I'm new to Power Automete, but I think it might be a game changer in my companys work flow. I just can't get it right.

What I'm trying to do is to autocreate a task when a message is added to a teams channel. The problem is that our messages are imported from Outlook by clicking "Share in Teams". That way a massage is an imported e-mail file (.eml).

 

When I use standard flow "Create a task from channel massage" by triggering the flow and filling in addaptive card it works just the way it supposed to.

 

How to make this automaticly (without a trigger) by adding an e-mail title as a task title and a link to channel message in task description?

 

So far I'm getting:

The request is invalid:
A null value was found for the property named 'title', which has the expected type 'Edm.String[Nullable=False]'. The expected type 'Edm.String[Nullable=False]' does not allow null values.

 

I get that it's cos my message is .eml, but how can I change that?

Hi there,

I have a solution. Insted of trigger "when a message is added in teams" I use "when file is added in Sharepoint". It works well.

 

Similar example below:

@ArchitectMadhan Thank you for your answer, but it's not it. I need to skip the trigger (clicking "create a tas from a message"). I nedd the task to be created automaticly whan a message is added to a channel.

 

There is an option like that, but I'm having truble with automaticlly giving task name and description without an addaptive card since my messages are simply .eml files.
