I'm in a situation where I need to daily create planner tasks for a few people.
I'm good on scheduling, I'm good on creating and updating the task. Where I'm stuck is...
I'd like to create the flow in such a way that I just create an Apply to Each (I think) for the planner's Create Task/Update Task Details actions. I figured out that all I need to pass in is the person's email address and the description, I just can't figure out how to do it.
I was thinking it was with the Create CSV Table action, but that doesn't seem to provide an output. I don't want to put the CSV file on a share somewhere, I'd rather just have it live in the flow itself.
Is there a way to do it, or do I just need to create a pair of create/update tasks for everyone?
You could just create an array variable and staticly define the user/description.
If it were me, I'd just make an excel spreadsheet or sharepoint list and have the flow loop through. More scalable, easier to maintain. Flow can create a csv table/output, but cannot read from csv(yet).
Variable is probably one of the few words I didn't search for when I was looking at actions. LOL
I'll give this a try. I considered the sharepoint route but, while I agree it'd be more scalable, it's also more moving parts to track and I don't want to trust other people to not delete a file =\
Hi @Jaydeflix ,
Could you share more details on your scenario?
Where do you get value for the Create CSV table action?
From your description, you would like to create/update task details with user’s email address and the description, please try to get the required info from the data source directly instead of from the csv table.
Please take a try with it.
