Build Flow to Import to Planner from Excel + Update Excel based on Planner Activity

Hi everyone - 

 

Hoping for a bit of direction and help. At the end of the day I'm trying to find a solution that will work for everyone on the team. We have some people who really prefer excel to keep track of their tasks and some (including myself) who prefer planner.

 

I'm very new to flows, but I have a feeling we could come up with some workarounds to satisfy both groups. 

 

Here's what I'm hoping for:

  • Automated flow(s) that either runs real time/ scheduled 2-3x per day or is triggered, M-F
  • Flow to import and update tasks from Excel to Planner and vice versa
  • Incl Field: Plan, Bucket, Title, Assignment, Progress, Priority, Due Date

As an aside, our team members currently work across multiple plans. If it's possible, I'd like to create one spreadsheet off of which this flow would run. 

 

All the above said, I am so hopeful that someone's run into this before and has a flow that they wouldn't mind sharing my way. It would be amazing.

 

Thanks

H
