Planner attach document from Outlook email

I noticed on the Planner Flow options, there is no way to update a Tasks attachments. I was wanting to create a full Task from Outlook, but it was missing the ability to attach a file from an Outlook email. The ability to add Planner attachments into the Flow process would be very helpful.

We work with such workaround. However, the links in the description box are not clickable. Plus, if you move or rename the file on SharePoint the link is broken.

I wish we had the feature in flow to attach files to a planner tasks so that other team members can work with those attachments..

we ended up improving this solution


-we store the files in a shared doc lib in a Group site, all Task plan members have access to that doc lib

-we group them together in a folder, that folder has the same name as the Task (with special chars removed)


that way we have an url that never changes and is easy to remember/copy

Similar here,

I want to add a link to a file in sharepoint to the task. Which is basically adding an attachement.

Would be great 🙂

Microsoft just updated the Planner-Update Task flow.

Use that!  Not sure how to add photos in here but here is a link of it

I would really like to see improvements to be able to create a Planner task directly from Outlook with the e-mail as an attachement. Saving e-mails to a group site or other area is time consuming and a waste of space that would eventually need to be archived or cleaned up. 


I've managed to create a task through Flow but it doesn't permit to add anything to the Planner task except for a header. The options are limited when it comes to a Planner connector action. 


Being able to select an e-mail and create a task from it directly in Outlook would be a great addition as well as having more options in the Planner connector in Flow (which seems to be limited to header and dates)

Our company also needs that kind of feature because we wan't to get the attachment from a mail

and add it to a Task.
