Updating a MS planner task with the attachment from a calendar Event

Hi all

 

I am struggling to find an answer on this one. 

I have created a flow that takes a Calendar event that you create and automatically adds that to MS planner in a task by a bucket. 

It automatically takes the subject , body, start date, end date, etc.

 

However I couldnt find a way to take also the attachment from the Calendar event.

The Get Event doesnt show attachments, and I dont want to create it from email ( I saw already a post on that). 

 

I also saw somewhere that you need to use sharepoint list? anyway that we could avoid that?

Any Ideas? 

 

Thank you

Cris

Hi @CristianD ,

 

Do you want to sync Outlook event attachments to Planner task?

 

Outlook event triggers don’t have a dynamic content for Attachment. So I am afraid that it might be not possible currently to update MS planner task with the attachment from a calendar event.

 

There is a similar request on Flow Ideas Forum, please vote it at here:

Further, about how to update a MS planner task with attachments, the following blog could be helpful:

OK so you just confirmed that its not possible. 

Yes I know about this post as I bumped into it ealier. 

 

Probably I will just have to make it work differently- I am thinking about a power app. 

 

thanks
