Scheduled Recurring Tasks in Planner: Due Date to be Variable

I'm creating a scheduled recurring task for planner - I need the due date to be the same as the creation date every time it is generated. Any tips on how to make that happen?Screen Shot 2020-09-16 at 10.08.14 AM.png

Hi!

I am assuming when you say 'Creation day' you mean the date and time flow is executed. IF so, you can use utcnow() WDL expression to obtain it.

In case you are not familiar with expressions, follow these steps to assign it to your 'Due date' input:

Hope this helps

One more thing

It's a long time since the last time I worked with Planner connector. At the beginning, the Connector didn't like Date time expressions with UTC format (I mean a capital Z at the end), so in order to solve it I used the following expression:

replace(utcNow(),'Z','')

Not sure if the connector is accepting UTC format now.

Hope this helps
