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!

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

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:

I was checking links above and currently this content is not available (at least for me - access denided) - Dear Community do You know if this solution to assign specific person is on go-live mode already?
