Outlook 365 Calendar updates to Microsoft Planner

I've fried my brains trying to work this out.


I'm trying to 'sync' Office 365 Outlook Calendar with Microsoft Planner. This is what I'm trying to / tried to achieve.. Help would be greatly appreciated. Creating a task is no issue, the issue that arise is when the calendar event is updated/ deleted on Outlook Calendar.


Action: When an event is added, updated or deleted (Office 365 Outlook)

[ Parallel Branch 1 ]

  •  Set condition control to Action Type = Added
  • If yes, Create a task (Microsoft Planner)

[ Parallel Branch 2 ]

  • Set condition control to Action Type = updated
  • If yes, Update a task (Microsoft Planner) 
Task ID cannot be obtained because it would be dependent on the future task created on Planner. Is there any workaround on this?

[Parallel Branch 3 ]

  • Set condition control to Action Type = deleted
  • If yes, Update a task (Microsoft Planner)

How do I obtain the variable Task ID of future events that will be added on the calendar and applying that to the condition of updating planner? Is there a way we can rewrite / set Task ID to match Task Title (which will be configured as:  




Many thanks!

Hi @min_ ,


You could consider saving the event id in Task description and configuring Update task details action under Create task action.

If you need to update the task, first check whether the current task’s description contains the current event id, and if so, update the planner task.

It should be noted that if you want to update a planner task details, it is best to execute the update task details action after 5 minutes of task creation, as below:


The configuration of deleting a task is basically similar to update, just change Progress filed.


Hope it helps.
