Hi @Flow_User ,

 

The preview version of the Create a task actions can do this. So you just need to swap this one out instead of using "Create a task" step and you will see the priority filed at the bottom of this step. You could get it by calling beta endpoint: https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/planner/tasks


It's looking for a number to set the priority here the description from MS website:

Priority of the task. Valid range of values is between 0 and 10 (inclusive), with increasing value being lower priority (0 has the highest priority and 10 has the lowest priority). Currently, Planner interprets values 0 and 1 as "urgent", 2 and 3 and 4 as "important", 5, 6, and 7 as "medium", and 8, 9, and 10 as "low". Currently, Planner sets the value 1 for "urgent", 3 for "important", 5 for "medium", and 9 for "low".

 

You could refer to this link: https://sharepains.com/2022/01/10/task-priority-in-microsoft-planner/

@Thomas22 No, I did not find a solution.... If I come across anything, I will post it.

I am having the same problem. The only workaround appears to be calling the Graph API directly via HTTP call. But the authentication path and set-up is too cumbersome so it's not viable for most Low coders and non IT Admins.  I guess we have to wait for Microsoft to expose this in the Planner connector for Power Automate.

So, I wass facing the same problem.

 

In my case, I wass trying to actualize a list of a planner activities. What i did wass take the value from the variable priority on the output of my "get a task" action and write on the expression field. Something like this: 

outputs('Get_a_task')?['body/priority']
(I've tried to translate for english because my power automate is on Pt-BR, so i don't know if it's 'Get_a_task' on the parentheses the original is: outputs('Obter_uma_tarefa')?['body/priority'])
 
The four types of priorities follows the following logic:
Low = 9
Medium = 5
Important = 3
Urgent = 1
 
I really hope this helps someone because I've got stuck a few days trying to solve that problem.
And sorry for the bad english.
