How to send an email reminder for tasks in planner, with a description in the email content

I can't find a post that works correctly for the situation i am trying to solve.  I am trying to create a flow that will send an email 14 days before a due date in a task (Planner) that includes the description in the content of the email.

 

When i try to 'List Tasks' and 'Get Task Details' the run is successful but there is no output - it gets stuck at the condition stage and therefore skips sending the email.  This is what i currently have, i would be grateful for any assistance with this.

Planner 'List Tasks' is working fine for me. I have been invoking it 5 times a week for the last month.

Are you using the right input for 'Apply To Each'? Did you doubleckeched the inputs seleted on 'Get tasks'?

hi @efialttes ,  thank you for responding.  I managed to solve it by removing the first row of the condition.

 

The problem i have now is working out how i get the 'dueDateTime' in the content of the email sent - would be grateful for assistance on that one.

@AnnaJordan 

I guess your flow structure remains the same. If so, I would try with the expression:

items('Apply_to_each')?['dueDateTime']

Hope this helps
