Re: Help for plan automate

Hi @johnabrahambio

 

Where are you want to create the plan in?

I have made a test on my side and we could only create task for a plan in Planner connector in Microsoft flow currently,

if you want to create plan in planner with Microsoft flow, the requirement couldn't be achieved and you could consider submitting an idea to flow ideas forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

Best regards,

Alice

Re: Help for plan automate

Thanks

 

I am trying to create the plan in MS teams. Is there a possibility to create tasks in my teams and show the tasks against respective members in my teams.?

 

I am having terrible issues to get the dates from excel to MSFLOW. Its not recognizing the dates. 

 

In the excel I have start date time and Due Date time. I tried having empty rows for start date time and Due Date time

when there is no data in the start date time and due date time I used following expression

 

addDays(utcNow('dd/MM/yyyy'),0,'dd/MM/yyyy')
addDays(utcNow('dd/MM/yyyy'),8,'dd/MM/yyyy')

 

Idea is to take current date and get the start date and due date which is 8 days from start date.

 

That didnt work

 

I also tried following 

addDays('1900-01-01',float(item()['Starting Date']),'yyyy-MM-dd')
addDays('1900-01-01',int(item()['Due Date Time']),'dd-MM-yyyy')

 

and then did with empty columns in excel

 

concat(formatDateTime('Starting Date Time','yyyy-MM-dd'),'T00:00:00Z')
concat(formatDateTime('Due Date Time','yyyy-MM-dd'),'T00:00:00Z')

 

I am also attaching my flow. Is there a way to make this happen
