I'm new to Flow, so be patient with me!
Goal: Flag an email in Outlook and trigger the creation of a task in Planner that includes email content and attachments.
Challenge: Keeping the content of the email and attachments within the newly created task.
I have figured out how to flag an email to create a task in "Planner" but I cannot seem to get any of the email content or attachments to attach to the task. Right now, it only pulls in the subject line of the email, and that isn't very helpful at all.
We could create a flow to update email body, subject line to the Task in Planner, but currently it is not possible to add attachments to Planner Tasks.
To create a Task to with the email content, we could configure the flow likes below.
Adding an action Update task details will make it possible to add the email content in the Task description, using the action Html to text to convert the email content to text.
About adding attachments to task, please vote the following idea, PGs will take hot ideas into consideration in the future releases:
