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:



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




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>.

The following thread could be your reference:
