SharePoint task list "Assign To" and "Parent" fields

I'm using Flow to access data in a SharePoint "Task" List.
1) This type of list allows for partent child relationships. However, when looking at the data returned for a particular item, there is nothing that would indicate the parent task. I checked the body of the get items action and I don't see anything related to the parent in there either. Is it possible to get this information?
2) I have an "Assigned To" field that allows multiple people or groups. I understand multi-value fields are not yet supported, however, I created a test field in my list of the "Person or Group" type and I chose not to allow multiple values and it still did not return the field. Interestingly, the Assigned To field and my test field appear as selection option in flow when I view the dynamic content available, but the values are empty and they do not appear in the body of the get items action when I view the logs.

Re: SharePoint task list "Assign To" and "Parent" fields

Hi @KrisCollins,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

  1. For your first question, I have made a test on my side and confirmed that it may be a bug. It is impossible to get this information.
  2. I also made a test on "Assign To" field and "TestField" of SharePoint Task list on my side and occur same issue with you.

If you would like this issue to be solved soon, please submit a idea to Flow Idea Forum:


Best regards,
