Building a Flow in Planner with trigger conditions

I am trying to build a Simple project flow.  I have bucket a, b, c, d.  When I have a task in bucket a that is complete I want a new task to be created in bucket b with check list items Pizza, Kiwi, Ice Cream, with a start date of the date it was completed and assigned to the person that marked the task as completed in bucket a.  I would have a similar need for each b to c and c to d.  I am struggling trying to create the trigger condition to get say if bucket a, b, c or d is completed and also defining that the check list items are.

Re: Building a Flow in Planner with trigger conditions

 

Hi @jefeseenmyshoe ,

 

Please consider referring to the following method to set trigger conditions to monitor whether the task in the specified bucket is completed.

You need to know the bucket id in advance, you can use the List bucket action to get the bucket id.

 

In addition, regarding the configuration of check list items, I am afraid that relying on the existing functions in the Planner task connector cannot achieve such a requirement.

 

Please refer to the ideas mentioned in this thread:

Creating a checklist item in Planner task - Power Platform Community

 

In addition, you can refer to the method mentioned in the article below to add check list items:

Power Automate & Logic Apps: Adding Checklist Items to a Planner Task. – William's IT...

 

If you want to monitor multiple buckets, you can consider using Save as to create multiple similar flows to monitor the corresponding buckets separately:

Re: Building a Flow in Planner with trigger conditions

hi @jefeseenmyshoe  this can perfecty can be done, but requires some special considerations. 

 

See you 2 flows, one to create task in the buacket a and the your you need to use the trigger when a task is completed. So when a task is completed get all the tasks in all buckets so to understhand what is the bucket of the task created you need to add someting in some place like the title of the task to compare in a condition and then you can do this.

so as you see when the tiltle of the task contains that this task was part of bucket a, you can create the new task in the bucket b.
