Microsoft Power Automate creating multiple Planner tasks for Flagged Outlook Email

I have created a flow to create a planner task when I flag an email in Outlook. When anyone replies I get multiple tasks created in Planner. How do I get it to stop creating multiple tasks?

I am providing an improvement plan based on your configuration.

 

Filter array to filter tasks with the same subject and title.

The expression in Compose is used to determine whether there are qualified tasks in the Filter array.

 

If the result is equal to 0, indicating that such a task does not exist, then a new task can be created.

So the parameters in Condition are Compose's output and 0 respectively.

Hi @Tbruns ,

 

If someone replies, do you need to update the task details? If not, it seems that you only need to check whether a task with the same title has been created.

  1. Set the condition in the Filter array to "is equal to".
  2. When configuring Condition, the left parameter is the output of Compose, and the right parameter is set to 0.

Hope that makes sense.

I understand the Filter Array but can you explain this?

When configuring Condition, the left parameter is the output of Compose, and the right parameter is set to 0.

Sorry I am really new to expressions etc.  Is this correct?
