Hi @sfoerst,

I don’t think Planner Id could be compared with the item Id, as they are under different identification mechanisms.

If your SharePoint list contains a field that stores the Planner Id, then we could compare the planner id with this field.

Nested loop is not supported under Microsoft Flow currently, but we could workaround it with the steps below:

  • Add a proper trigger, here I use Flow button trigger.
  • Add “Get items” action.
  • Add Variable-> Initialize variable, Name set to ItemArray, Type set to Array, Value set to value content of “Get items” action.
  • Add “List my plan” action, specific the Microsoft Planner connection.
  • Add a “Apply to each”, output set to value content of “List my plan” action.
  • In “Apply to each”, add a “Do until”, condition set to @empty(variables('ItemArray')).
  • Within “Do Until”, add a Condition in which you can compare planner id and item id. Then add “Compose” action, Input set to following formula:

 ”@skip(variables('ItemArray'),1)”

Add “Set variable” action, choose ItemArray, Value set to output of “Compose” action.

  • Add “Set variable 2” action, choose ItemArray, Value set to output of “Select” action.
