Completed to-do task flow to sharepoint list

Hi,

 

I managed to create a flow between Microsoft to-do and my sharepoint lists. I have multiple lists and it's al working perfectly. 

But the difficult part seems to be the updating part, task completion.

I solely use to-do for my task management and I want completed to-do tasks deleted in Sharepoint. But thats where the trouble starts.

 

I managed to get to the point that it DID delete the completed to-do task, but also along with all the other tasks in the same list. I've been through every forum and post about this, even tried to copy it with another post about Planner tasks and then switching everything with Microsoft To-Do actions/triggers.

The main problem seems to be that my To-Do tasks have a different ID than the corresponding Sharepoint tasks, and I can't get it right.

 

Does anyone have the solution? This is the flow now ("Taken" is dutch for tasks):

Thank you in advance!

First off thank you for the reply, but it didn't help my flow. I still don't understand how to use the filter query, even with reading all the documentation about it. It's just not for me haha.

 

I solved it by just deleting the filter query entirely and "Delete Item" shouldn't have been "current item", but rather "id". When I saved it, it became the variable version of "id", the pink one. Then it worked.

 

I even managed to link my to-do to my sharepoint & outlook, along with creating, updating and deleting tasks along with events.

 

But again,

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my problem, and I'm sorry for not answering.
