To-Do task on behalf of someone

Hello all,

 

I'm looking for some solution, if it is possible to create tasks in someone else To-Do or Outlook Tasks. I would like to use it as part of onboarding. Also I would like to use it as weekly tasks that will be generated and assigned automatically by Flow to list of To-Do users.

Does anyody have some idea? I don't want to use Planner as the there is need to invite task assignee to O365 group to be able to handle such tasks.

 

Thank you for any ideas.

P.

Hi @vecerpa,

 

I am afraid that the current action cannot automatically assign the task to list of To-Do users.

 

If you would like to create a task and assign to someone automatically by Microsoft flow, you could vote for the similar ideal in the forum below:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Create-and-assign-Outlook-tasks-to-someone-else/idi-p...

 

Also you could post this idea in the Flow Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.

Hi @v-bacao-msft,

 

I have already voted for this idea. So now I have to wait to be able to realize this business case via Flow. Hope I will find some workaround for this now.

 

Thanks.
