This may have been asked before, or a rookie move by myself but I haven't been able to change my progress state for a task in Planner using Flow.
On updating the task (which works) I have tried the following:
Setting to a number value i.e 50 as it ties to a percentComplete field.
Setting to a variable that mirrors the names of the main progress states i.e (In progress).
all of which come back with percentComplete 0. I know there are drop downs of the three options also, but i dont really want to update the planner for assigned person and then have multiple conditions to update the task again for 1 of the three states (i.e one update with it dynamically set). Any help would be appreciated. Reply I have the same
Hi Alice, thanks for the response, Im not worried about what format it takes, In progress and completed are also fine to be updated to.
But i couldnt see how i could have one update with it dynamically setting that status, for example it didnt work if I had a variable just saying 'In progress'. It only seemed to work if i had the update hardcoded to one of the drop down options rather than a custom string of the same name.
I can use a work around of having multiple conditions which contain an update to planner with the hardcoded value from the drop down based on a value, but this just seems like a lot of work for something as simple as letting it be dynamic based on a variable string that is of identical value to the hard coded list.
