Assign User who for completed planner task

Hello there,


I have DocSet (that's basically a request), with certain meta data, one of which is "Step". The step metadata is a list of 5 steps. When the request is created it is in "Step 1" and task is created for the user who created it, when the person has completed what they have to do they change the metadata to "Step 2". So on and so on.


While waiting for the ability to move Tasks from bucket to bucket, i've decided to create a flow that when the Step is changed (When a document is modified trigger) the task that was created in Bucket Step 1 is "Completed", and another task is then created in Bucket Step 2 with the same name, just different assigned users.


Now, the problem is when the task is updated to Completed, the user who Completed the task is my account because it's my Flow. Is it possible to set the user who completed the task to the user who modified the DocumentSet ?




ps. I also can't send an e-mail using the group Email address, it always comes from me?

I think that'd be default behavior since you are the user the Outlook Send Mail action is identified with.
What could be a workaround if you are using MS Teams somewhere in there is to use Flow Bot message (either to a user or to a team channel). If it's to a channel, you can even tag people in it.
In these cases, the message comes from Flow Bot and has a note on the bottom that you used Flow to automate it.
If you're not using Teams and this doesn't work for you...don't know 🙂 Perhaps somebody else knows a way to handle this.


Hey InterestedBloke,


Thanks for the reply, i think i must have missed the notification e-mail in my spam..


They haven't rolled out Teams to the whole company yet so i'll just have to wait before i can try that out. I'll sure give it a go when i can!
