Flow for Email > To Do Task -- No option to assign task to a specific person?

I've successfully built a flow to take form data (Microsoft Form) > email me the contents of the form (Outlook) > and finish by creating a task (Microsoft To Do). 

 

One thing, though -- in the To Do section of the flow, there's no (readily apparent) option to assign the task to a specific person. You can dump the task into a specific task list, but not assign it.

 

Any advice? Thank you!

Hi!

Did you consider using Microsoft Planner as a workaround  instead of ToDo? Does it match with your requirements?

Thanx!

We abandoned Planner in favor of To Do because the UI for To Do works much better for us.

Hi @OldFatDog ,

 

I am afraid that we could not assign a task to the specified person by Add a to-do action.

Please check the following idea:

If you want such a feature to be supported by Power Automate, please consider posting your suggestions in ideas forum so it might be considered for future release:
