Creating tasks out of email for different plans in Planner

I set up 2 flows to allow me to make tasks out of emails in Planner. Each flow for a different plan. 

How do I chose in which plan the email/task goes? Right now they all end up in the same plan and they can't be moved. That is useless.

Hi @Anonymous,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you want to create Planner tasks in different Planner plans based on incoming emails?


If you want to create Planner tasks in different Planner plans based on incoming emails, you could consider take a try to add a Condition to determine which plan the email goes.


For example, if the email address of the incoming email includes the specific company domain, the email would go your first Planner plan. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:3.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:4.JPG


If I misunderstnad your scenario, please reply here and I would provide a proper workaround for you.

Hi Kris


Here are the screenshots:


Yes, you are right. I want to create planner tasks from incoming emails. They can come a whole range of people: internal, external. 

It would be perfect if there would be a way to get options once I decide on emails should be a task. I can’t pre-determine this based on who emails me. I am working on a big project with 60 different people. 


What do you suggest?
