Create an Asana task from an email with the email attached.

I am not sure this is the correct board and I apologise in advance since I haven't look at Power Automate since I grew frustrated a few years ago (Flow). Power Automate continues to be not very easy to navigate (or at least for me).


What I would like to do:

From an Outlook email on my desktop outlook, create an Asana task with a link to the e-mail (or with the email attached). This part I can do a "quick step" from within Outlook by forwarding the email (attached) to the assignee and relevant Asana project, but I would like to add a couple of functionalities.

I would like to add:

  • the first few lines of body text (not the whole email)
  • being able to schedule the task to a certain day by adding a string in the subject "!23.Jun" or "!Wed" or "!1w"
  • being able to assign it to more than 1 projects
  • being able to assign a few tags by string in subject "#urgent" 
  • delete the # an ! strings described above

It may be too ambitious... that's why I'd like to know if there's a likely way before I dive too long into this... 

thanks, N
