Complete Outlook Task then complete Planner Task

I have tried this, but it did not work:


I want to mark an Outlook Task as complete and then update the status as completed in Planner.


I have tried this Flow:

When a task is completed (Outlook Task) -> Update a task (Planner).


However, it did not work.

Re: Complete Outlook Task then complete Planner Task

Hi @  NiclasM,



Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

What is the problem you meet when the flow runs?Will the trigger "when a task is completed (Outlook Task)" run?


I have made a test on my side and have created a flow as below:



However, when I set the task is completed, the trigger wouldn't be fired in the flow.

Do you have the same issue as me?


I would post this issue to my product team. If the issue is solved, I would reply here.

Re: Complete Outlook Task then complete Planner Task

Hi Alice,


Thank you for your reply.

Well I have the same flow, however, I have tried to use "ID" instead, so that it is dynamic. I believe the example that you provide, will only close that specific task?



It seems like I cannot get my snippet tool to show the image here?


However, yes, I have the same issue as you that the "Update a task" is not being completed after I mark a task a completed in Outlook.
