Create a flow that uses a form to create a Planner Task - need the flow to add standard checklist items to the task in planner.

I have a built a form that allows a manager to author a revision task and assign it by entering a response to the form.  I built a flow that populates the response data of this form into a task on planner.  This flow also updates the task description with info from the form and assigns the task from the response data in the form. 

 

s there anyway for this flow to create standard checklist items to populate in each planner task that this created from this form?

Hi @TryingOffice365 , thank you for your post in the Flow Community.

 

In simple terms, yes, although you'd need to use the REST API. I am not sure if you are familar with this or not as it steps you more into "developer territory" but here is some information:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/planner-overview?view=graph-rest-1.0

 

Here is where you will find the detail on updating the checkboxes - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/plannertaskdetails-update?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=javasc...

 

This example to be specific. 

 

Please give this a try if you like and post back if any issues. Also ... here is a useful community blog that covers updating other aspects of the task. https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Flow-Community-Blog/Create-Planner-Task-and-Include-At...

 

If you have found my post helpful, please mark thumbs up.

 

Any other questions, just ask.

 

Thanks, Alan
