Duplicating completed recurring planner tasks in Power Automate


I'm trying to duplicate planner tasks with a specific label when their status change to "completed" to keep track of my progress and the information I keep on adding to my recurring tasks. I am stuck as the duplication step.



I am using Planner as a personal reminder system as well as a journal to help me be more efficient at my new role. I have created a set of recurring tasks that I need to do on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc basis. 

Every time I receive feedback or a request to improve, I log that into the task itself (checklist, notes) to remind myself to do it the next time.


Using Power Automate, I update dynamically the start and due dates based on their recurrence (daily, weekly, ...) of parent recurring tasks (using their task ID) in order to see them listed when necessary.


I'm also logging comments every time I complete a task to help me create my reports. Each of my recurring tasks has labels (Recurring, Interval, and other categories) that I use depending on the type of reports I need to write. For example, if I need to write my monthly financial review, I filter based on #Monthly and #Financial to see all tasks completed and use their comments for my reports.


I struggle with the duplication part of the process. The idea of the flow I have in mind is the following

If a Recurring "parent" task as the label "recurring" and was marked as complete, then, extract all the information of that parent task and create a clone. 

Then my recurring flow changed the status of the parent task id to "not started" and update their start and due range based on the relative logic (following this tutorial Create Recurring Tasks in Microsoft Planner using Microsoft Flow | by Rob Quatela | Medium).


Any idea how I can create that duplication flow? 


Thanks community 🙂 

Edit: I managed to duplicate tasks using when status set to complete > Get task details > Create new task

But my goal is also to keep track of notes, checklist and comments, in this case, they do not follow through.
