Send flagged e-mails in Outlook to Planner or ideas on how to NOT miss out on important e-mails

Copper Contributor

I want to make sure that I do not miss out on any leads given in e-mails from customers. Usually, I just flag important e-mails, but very often they also "disappear" after some time. I would really like to know if there are some tools for linking important e-mails into TEAMS without having to send it by finding e.g. the e-mail address to a channel in TEAMS. Could it be possible to create a FLOW that sends the e-mails I flag in Outlook, into a specific PLANNER assigning a task to me with an e-mail notification after two days? (I am not familiar with FLOW, so any help would be highly appreciated, OR please send me other ideas how to handle this).

Of course!

And there’s also a flow template for this:

Also you can use Microsoft To-Do for personal task management! And the flag mail feature is now built into that, creating a task! Your assigned planner tasks are also going to be visible in To-Do soon

@adam deltinger  TNX for tips! I should have seen that flow :). But, as an follow-up question, what is exactly the difference between the TO-DO and PLANNER (if I have created a private Planner)? I just need to keep track of my tasks/actions. 

They are different services but both task management! Planner created a group and other workloads and is intended for group tasks!
To-Do is intended for personal todo lists!
I guess a 1 man planner works for sure but not in the end for an org, creating lots of groups and workloads each time someone creates a planner plan :)
I find todo a better solution, has an win10 app, creating different lists, integration with outlook , etc
