Create a flow for an email I have flagged in outlook

Can I create a flow for outlook emails I have flagged to then create a task in Planner. I want all the content (text and attachments) to be added/included in the task.

Hi @jackieh 

 

There is a Flow template exactly for this

Template name "Create planner tasks for flagged emails in Office 365"

Hey @jackieh 

 

Currently adding attachments to a planner task from Flow is not supported. You need to save the attachment in SP and then add the sharing link or the link to the file to the planner task by adding the update task details. More detailed process flow here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Flow-Community-Blog/Create-Planner-Task-and-Include-At...

 

Hope this Helps!

@yashag2255 is the Office 365 Outlook connection for flagged emails?

Thanks in advance!

@RezaDorrani does this include all the data from within the email?

Hey @jackieh 

 

Yes. The "When an email is flagged" trigger exists both in the Outlook office 365 and the outlook.com connectors. And the planner connector/ actions/ rest API currently does not have support for attachments. 

 

Hope this Helps!
