Save Outlook Email as PDF and save it to Sharepoint.

Is it possible to convert the any new email to a pdf file then saving it to Sharepoint? I was successful saving the email attachments to Sharepoint but having trouble converting to pdf.

Hi @S_Tran,

 

Yes, it is possible to do it, you could following these steps to store the Email body as HTML file, then convert it into PDF file.

So you still use the "create file" for onedrive regardless if you are saving the pdf to sharepoint?

I tested your suggestions and it worked.  But there was a part of the email (in the body area) that didn't convert.  I suspect maybe the body of the email might have an image or table embedded because it didn't pickup when creating the file.

Hi @S_Tran,

 

If you want to use the convert file feature, the file should keep in the OneDrive, you could create a delete file action after converting completed.

These pictures in the Email body couldn't be extracted it is a known shortage.

In the email there's actually not pictures but a embedded table.  Seems like the convert feature is not converting HTML correctly to PDF.  I tried converting a regular email message and it worked perfectly fine.
