Assigning tasks or to-dos based on SP people picker

Hi,

 

Would it be possible to assign tasks or to-dos based on a people picker value in SP?

 

Let's say there's a people picker value = PERSON1

 

Can I use this info to assign a task or to-do to that person?

You can't access user's personal applications via Power Automate if that's what you're asking. You can create tasks in shared spaces like Planner and assign it to a specific user, but you can't add a task to user's personal To-Do or Outlook.

Hello @nikola_bgd ,

I think To Do is a personal task tracking app and you can't create To Do's for other users.

For collaboration with other users you can use Planner where you can select the 'PERSON1 Email' as the 'Assigned User Id'.

Is it possible to generate a task for a person on any instance? (without it being a shared plan, task etc..)

Hello @nikola_bgd ,

what do you mean by 'task for a person on any instance'?

Hi,

Is it possible to create any private task across O365, either in planner, outlook, to-do.. ?
