Office 365 - Flow- todoist, can "comments" be added to a task

I'm trying to use one of the prebuilt Flows linking Office 365 mail to todoist. The Flow creates a todoist task whenever an email is flagged. The problem is that the task is created with only the email subject and not the body of the email. If the email subject is not descriptive, it's very difficult to find the email based on the task name. The todoist connector doc doesn't show access to the "comment" in a task, therefore the email itself can't be added to the task. Is there a way to modify or add to these connectors or is that controlled by the MS Flow team and in this case, the todoist programmer?

 

Here's the Flow/todoist doc https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/todoist/

 

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Office 365 - Flow- todoist, can "comments" be added to a task

Hi @ DaveR12,

 

Access to the "comment" in a “Todoist” task is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

As an alternative way, to make the Title of the task descriptive, you could add the “Subject” dynamic content as well as  “Body” dynamic content  of the trigger in the “Title” field of “Create a task” action.

As the screenshots of my flow below:

The expression of the email body as below:

triggerBody()?['BodyPreview']

 

The flow run successfully as below:

The task would be created in Todoist as below:

Alice Zhang
