Email to Planner task - email attachments not working

Hi all


I'm trying to create a flow that will create a task in Planner upon the receipt of an email with certain trigger text in the Subject field.

The template I'm using is called 'Create a Planner task when a new email arrives'.


The flow works fine for regular emails however if I add some attachments to the email the attachments don't make it through to the task in Planner.


So for example if I create a new email to myself, include the trigger word, add a couple of PDF attachments and then send the email, it gets processed and the task shows up in Planner, however the attachments aren't there.


I've included a screenshot of the email stage below - what am I missing? If I attach some files from my computer to the email shouldn't they upload and appear in the task?

Please refer to the link below. It provides detailed information about how to save/link attachments to the Planner task from Outlook emails.


Hope this helps !
