"Condition is too complex or invalid" while trying Create tasks in planner for new Outlook Tasks

When rying to create a new flow based on "Create tasks in planner for new Outlook Tasks" template, I get the message "Condition is too complex or invalid. Unable to switch to basic mode".condition.PNG



I have not modified the condition. What can be the cause?

Hi @Reddy,


As I see, you are most probably trying to reach somethin like:

NotEmpty DueDateTime and DateTime


So the expression in your condition should be slightly different



It depends from where you get DateTime if it is also delivered into Flow by trigger.

Hi @Reddy,


Sometimes when the expression in the Condition is too complex, we could switch the Condition to basic mode, you could just leave the Condition in the advanced mode and run the flow.


I have made a test on my side and create the flow as screenshot below:



The flow would run successfully as below:



Best regards,


Hello,  @Reddy!

Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I was busy on another project. I tried your suggestion but the flow still fails.
