Create task action not deleting from flow



I have created a flow to create a planner task. Then based on multiple conditions, I have updated the task with a description and checklist items. Originally each condition had a 'create task', then 'update task'. I later created a 'create task' action higher up in the flow ladder so that the 'update task' action in each condition was updating the same task. 


I changed the Task Id to the newly created task, moved it below the 'update task' action, then tried to delete the 'Create a task'. It worked only for the false argument for every condition, not for the true argument.


Has anyone else experienced this or know how to fix it?

hi @jessicabishop47 what you can do is create a compose action and inside add your question propertie. Then run the flow and open the compose action to see what is inside, so then you will be able to understand what you are trying to compare. 

Maeby in this moment all your test are having false condition

Did I answer your question? Please consider to Mark

Hi @ChristianAbata ,


I just went and copied my update task action to clipboard, deleted both the update task and create task. Then re-added my update task to the condition and that worked.


Did you mean add that compose action to the Health Questionaire condition? I have it run off a Microsoft form, excel combination. Can you explain what you meant?
