Update in planner start date and expired date in a task depending of other tasks

Hello,

i would like to create a flow that update in planner, start date and expired date of tasks of a single bucket when there is a change of date of a single task of the same bucket.

 

Example:

New Articles Plan

Bucket: Product A

 

Task 1: Engineeering

Task 2: Production

Task 3: Shipping

 

i would like that when the expired date of Engineering task change, change also the date of Production task and shipping task.

 

in my example, the engineering expired date become the start date of Production and the end date Of Production will be 15 days from the start.

 

how can i approach to this update’s flow  ?

 

thank you

Hi @gennarodp,

 

If so, you could store the Excel file in a specified folder, then create a trigger When a file is created or modified, the folder set to that folder store the Excel file.

 

Then use the List Rows present in a table action to get these rows.Screenshot 2021-04-15 151606.jpg

 

Then list tasks, and compare them with the Excel rows to see which row changed, and update that changed task in Planner by using Update task action.

Hi @gennarodp,

 

It's unfortunate that your requirement couldn't be possible. Because there is no trigger could fire a Flow when a task is updated:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/planner/#triggers 

You could go to IDEA forum to vote for this similar idea to make it come true in the future:

Planner -flow trigger When a task is update - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

Hello @v-litu-msft ,

i could export excel of plan with id of each task and then update date of each task.

 

Can you help me with this approach ?

Hi @gennarodp,

 

So, you mean each time you update the task date will modify them in the Excel table which stores information of tasks?

Yes @v-litu-msft  i export the excel of plan, in which i have the id of each task.

 

I can change data of the task in excel with other columns "Start date_changed" and "End date_Changed" , and create a flow on this excel to update the date of each tasks.

 

I can realise excel formulas to this new fields to update Task's data and with automate start an flow that replace them in planner.

 

How can i realise it with this approach ?

 

Thank you
