Microsoft List to auto populate Task in Teams?

Hello!  I am having trouble creating an item in Microsoft Lists (tested in SharePoint Browser and the List in Teams) and having it automatically create a task in Microsoft Teams.  

 

I have tried using the templates "Create a Planner task for a selected item in SharePoint" and "Create a new Planner task for each new SharePoint item and post to Teams".  

 

I have tested multiple times have been unsuccessful.  I am not sure if I am missing something specific in one of the Flow fields, if there is a bug, or it is just not compatible at this time?   Thank you so much in advance!

Hi @kalkac 

 

I’ve tried to use the template ‘Create a new Planner task for each new SharePoint item and post to Teams’, and my test result is successful.

 

I think the error of your flow comes from column field names.

If you want to use the dynamic content like ‘Name’ for sharepoint and ‘Description’ for sharepoint, then you will need to ensure that the two column field names exist in your sharepoint list.

 

If your list doesn’t have two columns whose field names are ‘Title’ and ‘Description’, then you will need to change the two dynamic content as:

TriggerBody()?[‘column field name’]

 

In the template:

The dynamic content ‘Name’ for sharepoint is (the same logic applies to the dynamic content ‘Description’):

2.24-4.PNG

And you can see the column field name of the dynamic content ‘Name’ is ‘Title’.

You can find column field name in the URL of the column as below:

2.24-5.PNG

 

If you still have the problem, please feel free to let me know. And could you please take a screenshot of your error details and your flow?

Hi!  I'm not sure why I keep getting this error when I click accept as solution, but it will not let me accept.  I have tried to paste directly in my browser with the same response.  Thank you for your assistance with this, I was able to get the flow working! 🙂
