Hello,

 

I need to get date and time from email body to set calendar when new eamil arrives. This is the line of the body in HTML:

<body>

...

<p class="MsoNormal">revoke time:2018-09-27T11:30:00</p> 

...

</body>

 

MS flow

Compose: Body(email)

Compose2: split(outputs('Compose'),'revoke time:')?[1]   

Compose3: split(outputs('Compose2'),'</p>')

Compose4: outputs('Compose3')?[0] 

 

 

 

Function in Compose3 do not remove everthing after and including first <p>.

Re: get string from email body

Hi @zveres,

 

It seems that your email body is in HTML format. Please try to use the action HTML to text to convert the email body to plain text, then use codes to get date and time from email body.

The following thread could be your reference:
