Extract specific text from email body to create planner task

Hello,

 

I have a flow set up to create a planner task from an email that comes into my inbox. It creates the task just fine, but it titles the task as the subject of the email where I want it to title the task based on certain text in the body of the email.

 

Here is my currently flow:

The body of the email that comes in looks like this:

dshipley_1-1599246310388.png

 

I want the title of the Planner task to be whatever is after the first sentence (ending in "safe.") but before the email signature which starts with ("---").

 

So in this case - the task that is created in Planner from this flow should be called "Coca-Cola".

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thank you so much for the quick response. I am getting the following error, however:

 

Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Compose_2' inputs at line '1' and column '2877': 'The template language expression 'uriComponentToString(replace(uriComponent(outputs('Get_Title')[1]),'%0A',''))' cannot be evaluated because array index '1' is outside bounds (0, 0) of array. Please see https://aka.ms/logicexpressions for usage details.'.
