Sharepoint List Item to Update Planner Task Progress

I have a SharePoint list that I am using to create and update Planner tasks. I have figured out how to get every field over to Planner except for the Progress field. I currently have a "choice" column name Progress in my list that has the options {'Not started', 'In progress', 'Completed'}. 

 

I am using the Dynamic content of "Progress Value" from my list to populate the task's Progress field, however it does not seem to be working. It always adds a value of "Not started", regardless of what is in the choice field.

 

Is this not the correct way to accomplish this? Does the task Progress field not accept text values?

Hi @jbarkerag,

 

I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned,the task Progress field accept text values.

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

Please make sure the value of the "choice" column name Progress in your list that has the options 'Not started', 'In Progress', or 'Completed'.

 

The screenshot of the configuratopn of my flow as below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

Re: Sharepoint List Item to Update Planner Task Progress

Hi Alice,

 

Sorry for just now responding. Thank you for pointing the capital P out to me. For what it's worth, I was just trying to mimic the displayed values directly from the Planner user interface.

But once I changed my values in the SharePoint list to "In Progress", it worked just fine. I think I'm going to submit a suggestion that they update the values to be consistent. Regardless, it was an easy fix, and thank you for your help!
