Create Planner tasks from SPO list



I'm trying to create a Flow that will create a new task in planner based on a field marked as Urgent adn Im runnign into two issues.

  • Assign to not working
  • Updating comments section


So far I've got the easy stuff out of the way, the trigger works.  I have a column called "Assigned to" which is a SPO people picker column.  When I try to use this field in the flow it errors out. I'm guessing it has too much info that it cant use or the format is incorrect.  I've tried a few things with the User Profile controls but they don't seem to be able to parse the data in that column correctly. I'm not very familiar with building expressions or how to extract the info from that SPO column.



The other issue with adding comments, from what I can tell I need to use MS graph to get this done, are there any other options?

I addressed one "issue" I didn't realize that PoweAutomate was giving me the option to use the email address from the SPO column.  Just updating the comments left.

Another bit of an update, I'm looking into Graph API to update the comments and it looks like it wont work.  For graph to update the comments it needs a thread ID, that thread ID only generates when a comment is posted in the task.
