Creating flow: when date on task is in past, change date to today

Hello,

 

I would like to change the date on a task if it is in the past. The new date must be today's date.

No idea how to do this!

 

By the way, I am talking about due date of a Planner task.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello @abm 

 

Well, no, my first obstacle is to find the right trigger. When I create a new flow, I have to select a trigger first. That would be something like: due date on my planner task is in the past. Can you help me with that? I have search among the triggers, but could not find one like that.

Hi @tbenschop 

 

Thanks for your reply. There are no triggers for due date.

 

You need to get all the tasks. First check whether the task is completed or not? If completed then ignore those tasks. Next you could check the dude date against todays date to determine whether the task is due or not? Schedule the flow  trigger to run daily.

 

Please see below.  This gives you some guide lines for your solution.
