Add body of email to planner task when email is flagged

Hi, I have created a flow which successfully creates a planner task when an email is flagged, however the body of the email is not transferred over to the task. 

 

Please find my flow attached where I include the body tag in the HTML to text box.

hi there,
have you ever tried to put the outcome of htmltotext into a variable and then put this variable into the descritption in "Update Planner Task" funktion?
It worked well for me.

Do you mean there is no Property on Planner to set it to the email body?

You can use the UpdateTaskDetails after the create task to set the description

Hi @Mira_Ghaly 

So I add the body tag in the HTML to text box however no body message is added to the planner task. 

I have added 'Update task details' as shown below, however html description is added to the notes part of the planner task. Can you add this to my flow and screen shot please? image.pngimage.png
