Create Planner Task then Assign the Planner ID to SharePoint Row

So I’m setting up some task flows for my team. The gist is that we will have a SharePoint list storing all tasks, and a Planner page as the main interface for marking them off as complete. I have 3 flows as follows:

 

Flow 1 – Update SharePoint Task List to add new task on a recurring basis.

 

Flow 2 – When new item is added to the SharePoint task list, create a Planner task based on it’s information

 

Flow 3 – Whenever a Planner task is marked as complete, update the specific SharePoint row with who completed, when they completed it, etc.

 

In order to map a specific SharePoint row to a planner task though, I’m currently having to run with unique titles for each row, so that from Planners perspective I know which one to update. I’d rather use IDs than have to have unique titles though so here is my question:

 

In Flow 2 noted above, is there a way to create the planner task, and then assign the ID of that planner task back to the particular SharePoint row that was just created? I included an ‘Update SharePoint Item’ near the end of the flow in the hopes that the Planner task ID would be an option within Dynamic content, but it doesn’t seem to be.

 

I’m sure I’m probably just overlooking something here.

Re: Create Planner Task then Assign the Planner ID to SharePoint Row

Hi @Martin_MC,

 

Yes, you could use the dynamic content ID of created task to update the item just created in the Flow 2, and the task ID is unique.Annotation 2019-08-27 104330.png

Then when a task is completed, using the Get items and the Filter array to find the corresponding item.

Got it! I'm new to Flow so still learning and didn't know of the Compose function. Thanks a lot that's what I needed.
