Planner Flow convert HTML to Text Action doesn't seem to work

I have created a Flow using the Create Planner Task on Flagged Email. I have everything working fine except that I can't seem to get the Convert HTML to Text Action to convert the Planner Description (populated from the Body of the Email), so the Description contains all of the HTML code no matter what I do. I tried adding 10 Second Delay between each Action to allow time for the Actions to occur since one of my other Actions required this delay before it would perform the next step properly.


So the Flow is:

When Email is Flagged

Get my Profile

Create a Task

Update Task Details (puts email Body into Task Description)


What am I missing here? And exactly where in the Flow should the HTML Convert be placed and should I be Converting the Email Body or the Planner Task Description?

You place the HTML to Text action before you create the Planner task.

You then update the planner task with the output from the HTML to Text action!

Hi @dpace23236,


Please take the following screenshot for a reference. I have made a test on my side and it worked fine.


Before the Update task details, use the action Html to text, then get the dynamic content form this action.
