I am trying to create a recurring Planner task that gets created every 2 years. It allows me to create a task for 1 year, but I have not found a way to do it for 2 years. Is this possible with Flow or is the max you can do 1 year? Does anyone know of a work around?
Based on the Schedule connector documentation, the maximum interval is as follows:
Here's the link to the documentation for reference:

As a workaround to the recurrence limit you could try the following. If you are able to store the last audit date somewhere (e.g. Common Data Service, SharePoint etc) then you can change your recurrence trigger to be yearly or perhaps monthly and have a condition that runs first that compares whether your stored date value is less than the expression addDays(utcNow(),-730). If the result is true then Create your Planner task and update the stored date with the current date utcNow(). If the result is false then do nothing, the flow will run again a month later (or whatever recurrence period you set) and compare the date again.
Thanks for the information. Unfortantly, that did not solve my problem - I am still not able to successfully schedule a task to be created every 2 years on a specific date.
