Using a Switch to move tasks between Buckets

Hi! Trying to use Power Automate to create tasks in new buckets when a task is completed.

So here's what I have so far. First steps in the flow are to gather content from an entry form my team fills out.  I have another flow that generates a task for the first bucket.  That works fine. This flow then grabs the form details and task details for when a task is completed.

 

I'm then using a switch to trigger 2 new tasks to populate.  However when I test this, I complete a task in the first bucket and it creates 8 tasks in the second bucket. Hoping someone can help!

Hi @jompad ,

 

The only way to connect two flows together is for one flow to call a child flow, then you can pass the create date to the child flow to use as an input parameter:

Hi @jompad ,

 

Are you using two triggers within a single flow? It's not working, one trigger for one flow to use.

Is there a way I can still pull details from the form that was used to create a task in another flow so that I can use it in expressions?  For example. I have a 'start date' and I'm trying to get the flow to create due dates off of the start date. I added the second trigger so that I could pull details from that form entry.
