Planner List tasks retrieves only 400 tasks from planner

Hi, 

I need to export all tasks from planner to excel. Number of tasks is 426. I have created flow with the bellow schema:

Manual Trigger->Planner List Tasks->Excel Insert Row.

The flow works successfully, but I have noticed that it retrieves only 400 tasks.

Any ideas why 400? What do I do incorrectly?

Thanks

Hi @marti2,

 

Will the "List tasks" action always retrieves only 400 tasks in your flow?

If yes,I afraid that it is caused by the limitation of the "List tasks" action and If you would like this limitation to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Best regards,

Hello,

 

This post is marked as solved, but no solution is actually given.

The good news is that it is now possible to set Power Automate to run on more than 400 items:

1) In the List Tasks step, click on the three dots to reveal the options menu

2) Click Settings

3) In the Settings menu, select the option Pagination, and then set Threshold to a number greater than the number of items in your plan - I chose 800 here, as my plan has around 600 tasks:

4) Click Done

 

The flow will now execute to the maximum number of items that you specify:

Thank you so much! @ChrisAyers 
This was a lifesaver.
