Hi @drweby2 

 

As you are using the recurrence trigger in your flow, the flow will only check the current status of the planner task when it is executed and therefore, it will not be able to capture any modified details. You might be able to identify the newly created tasks by the created date attribute and identify any modified tasks by the modified attribute but you will not be able to get the tasks' atrribute values that were there before the changes were made. (makes sense?)

 

Now coming to the excel comparision, Flow currently supports a trigger for planner when a new task is created and you can use this one to trigger the flow when a new task is created and insert a new row in excel. You can raise an idea if one does not already exist to include a trigger that monitors any changes to the attributes on the planner tasks. That way you can have two flows where on runs when a new task is created and adds a row in excel and the other runs when an existing task is modfied. 

 

To compare if the title of the planner task exists in an excel sheet, you could do something like this: jaja.PNG

This way, you can get the row from the xcel where the title columns match and carry on the consecutive actions. 

 

Hope this Helps!
