Setting order of tasks in HTML table

I have a flow that generates an HTML table of every task on a Planner board. It iterates through the buckets and correctly lists each task in each bucket. But I can't find a way to set the order of the tasks on the table. I'd like the table to reflect the same task order as what appears on the Planner board. But Flow seems to default to the order in which the tasks were created. Is there a way to change this?  Thanks.

Re: Setting order of tasks in HTML table

Hi @kba1 ,


Do your what is the order rule for tasks appear on the Planner board?

I have made a test on my side, however I couldn't find the rule, and there is no any way to set the order of tasks in the HTML table in microsoft flow currently.

Re: Setting order of tasks in HTML table

I'm not sure what you mean by this:

"Do your what is the order rule for tasks appear on the Planner board?"


I order the tasks on the planner board based on what I consider to be their relative importance. The most important task is at the top of the screen, the second-most-important is second, etc.  When I export the board to an HTML table, Flow seems to ignore my order and instead lists the tasks in the order that they were originally created.
