Linking Sharepoint List to Tasks/To-Do/Planner

I have a list in my Sharepoint site. The purpose of the list is to manage tasks among about a dozen people. The relevant columns are "Proposed course of action"(Multiple lines of text), "Assigned to"(person/group), and "Completed" (Choice).


I would like to create a flow that takes the contents of the Proposed course of action, and creates a task (more on that in a second) that is assigned to the person in the "Assigned to" column. When the task is marked as completed in the task app, I would like another flow to toggle the value in the "Completed" column.


My first question is whether it makes the most sense to use Planner, Outlook tasks, or To-Do. To be frank, I am confused about the differences between them.


I attempted to use Planner, but it took more than 30 minutes to run through about 15 items.


Any advice on how to set something like that up?
