Outlook Email to Trello Cards

We are trying to build a flow to that pulls emails over from Outlook and creates a new card in Trello.  But the attachments do not come over correctly along with the body of the email.  Below is what we are trying to acheive.  Any help setting this up would be appreciated.  Thank you.


Emails sent to a specific email address

  • Creates a card in Trello TO DO list
  • When the card is created in Trello, it:
  • Attaches a copy of any files from the email
  • The subject in email will be the card name
  • The body of the email will be the card desciption
  • Create a due date and time in Trello 24 hours after the card is created



  • Does not create a new card on a reply to this email



  • When the card description is created, the html comes over with it making it difficult to read (see image).  Can this come over formatted in html? (the Trello app for Outlook brings it over formatted).Flow trello example.JPG

Re: Outlook Email to Trello Cards

Hi @scottkouri,


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

Attaching any files from the email is not supported in “Create a card” action of Trello connector currently. If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas forum:


I have made a test on my side and my flow’s configuration as below:3.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:4.JPG



 There is no way to format the card description in Microsoft Flow currently.

Re: Outlook Email to Trello Cards

When creating the trello card in Flow you can select "Body Preview" for the card body and that would pass only the content of the email and not the html.
