Send Email to Create a Planner task

New Contributor


We're new to Flow but would like to know if it's possible to send an email to a certain address that will create this as a task in Planner? We would like to CC the person who we want this assigning to and the email content to become the description.


Note: We want to avoid creating planner tasks from flagged emails.


Is this possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Santhosh Balakrishnan

Thanks for your response!


I am getting an error when testing the flow. but I think it's something simple that's causing it.

If you could help that would be appreciated.



@ash7v You have used the plan name as in my sample screenshot and this causes the error. Replace that with the correct plan id. YOu can find the plan id from Planner web portal as in below screenshot.

@Santhosh Balakrishnan I have changed this to the correct planner name. The flow is working correctly however I cannot get it to work for our emails and to actually create a task.

Do you have any ideas?
