Add description in outlook task when converting task from planner?

Hi!

 

I am using a flow which can convert tasks in planner to tasks in outlook. Unfortunately I cannot find a way to add the description text from the planner task in the body of the outlook task, does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks

 

Axel

It sounds as though you are having trouble accessing the Planner task description.  To do so, use a Planner Get Task details action.  So, if you are creating the Outlook task when a Planner task is created, follow the Planner "When a new task is created" trigger with a Planner "Get Task Details" action.  The Get Task details action exposes the Planner task description.
