Add an Action to allow category to be set on an email

It would be great if there was a way to add categories to an email through Flow.  The scenario I'm thinking of would be emails from specific domains get flagged with a specific category to make it easy to add flags like "Top Customer" or "Important Partner" or "Personal" based on the domain or other criteria that could be set as part of the flow.

That would be very useful for me. We have a sharedmailbox where everyone in my group uses a color/category for him/herself to tag the mails when they are taking care of that. I would use this feature to automatically mark/categorize outgoing mails or incoming mails from well-known sources. THis would automate around 30% of the repetitive work of constantly reviewing the mailbox and categorizing/marking as read.

This has been dwelling for 3 years now, and it is still tagged as "new", not even under review. This is absolutely basic feature that should be integrated into flow. Please Microsoft team, get this implemented, there's a lot of potential!

This would be very useful for me as we use category color flags to determine who is working on a task in our shared mailbox.  The tasks come in using MS forms and then we use flow to push out to a particular shared mailbox depending on the answers in the form.  To be able to use a catagory flag for who is assigned to a task to trigger an auto email in flow telling the requstor who is assigned once a flag is placed on that task in a shared mailbox is totally impactful to my teams workflow.  I have been waiting for over a year.

Why isn't this done yet?  This seems like a very basic feature that a lot of people have a use for.

Yes I am creating a new Flow as we expand teams to help with tasks coming in from forms, this would be impactful - now I am having to have my team go into SharePoint to manually add their name to a table to trigger an email

- Trying create MS Form submit is the trigger post to SharePoing using Flow add an item to a table. 

- Using Flow again to look up a value and send an email based on that test value to the correct team mailbox (we currently have six).   I was going to create an if statement, then thought to use Index/Match but now I am going to try xLookup)

- Whomever picks the task up will have to go into SharePoint and manually add there name.  I am hoping I can trigger a time of adding the name auto populate.  And at the same time trigger an email to the original submitter of the form.  I wish I could use the flag to trigger this step, but still waiting.

Hi @Anonymous,


now you can use the non-premium action "Send an HTTP request" instead  of the premium action "Invoke an HTTP request" to set a category via GRAPH.
