flagged email connector

So I've set up a flow to create a Task in Planner whenever I flag an email, and it was working over the weekend, if a little sporadically.


However, now it's just fallen completely on its face. I've not changed anything, but it seems like the initial connector is failing:

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Re: flagged email connector

Hi willdrm,


Please try to recreate the Office 365 Outlook connection to see if it will work. You may also consider recreating the flow.

I have created a simple flow on my side to test this issue. The flow works without issues.



Do you have any special settings on the trigger “When an email is flagged”?


Best regards,

Re: flagged email connector

I have a similar problem.


I have a Flow that is triggered when an email in my inbox is flagged.


I often receive several emails that I want to process using this flow.

When I flag the first email in my inbox the flow triggers and then runs with no errors.

When I flag the second email in my inbox the flow does not run and there is no error message.


The emails are sent via a distribution list from different senders and can be received at any time during the day.

I have tried clearing the flag and the setting the flag again and it will not run.


What I end up having to do to run the flow on the second email is to clear the flag, turn the flow off and then turn it back on again. I can then set the flag again and it will run.

Re: flagged email connector

I had a "From" filter on the trigger. I have removed it and so far it seems to work reliably.


I'm not sure if any limits have been exceeded but I assume if a tigger limit has been exceeded I would get some sort of alert or warning.
