Forms to Planner: Assign task to user(s) based on form response(s)

Hi,

I have a Microsoft Form configured to feed responses into Microsoft Planner, using Power Automate. This automatically creates a task in Planner and assigns it to a user.

However, I want the task to be assigned to users based on the answers provided in the form.

For example:

  • If form answer = yes, assign task to user Bob
  • If form answer = no, assign task to user Dan

Is this possible using Power Automate? Thanks.

Hello @Lightswitch 

 

Yes of course, here is a POC:

 

First Initialize a String Variable,

Next add a Condition, put in your MS forms Question on the left, is equal to, Yes

Now on the If yes, add a 'Set Variable' action and put in the Email you want to assign to if the answer is Yes.

Do the same thing in the If no block, Set that variable to the Email you want to assign is the question is No.

Now you can use the Variable dynamic content inside your Planner action to assign the task.
