Planner Task and Graph: how to start a new conversation thread on the task using Graph API?

Hi.

When you add a new Task (whether by Graph API or directly in the Planner app) the conversationThreadId is null. I want to be able to start a thread on the Task so I can add comments (i.e. posts) to it. It seems that is not possible. 😞

Comments on Tasks are Posts on the Conversation Thread as denoted by the conversationThreadId on the Task. You can add the first comment to the Task via the Planner app (which first creates the new Thread) and after that you can add posts to that thread via Graph because you can get the conversationThreadId from the Task.

BUT... it seems there is no way to START the thread on a Task via Graph. So you cannot add comments (posts) to it unless you manually add the first comment (and thread) via Planner app!

It seems you can add new Threads to a Group  but you cannot add a new thread to a Task.

Any ideas?

Hi @murrah ,

I'm afraid it's not supported to start a new conversation thread on the task by using Planner API in powerapps now.

For now, in this connector, it only supports these actions:

What you talked about is not included in.

Here's a doc about this in details for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/planner/#update-task-details

 

If the function that you want is not included in standard connector, you could create a custom connector. Then you could customize the functions that you want in this connecor.

Here's a doc about how to create  a custom connector for your reference:

Thanks for replying.

Yes, I am already using a custom connector - that is how I was using Graph. 🙂

My question was to confirm (or not) whether it is possible, using Graph via a Custom Connector via a PowerApp, to START a new conversation thread on a planner Task.

My custom connector works to add a comment to an EXISTING thread on a Task, but there seems to be no way to START a thread on a Task via Graph.

Thanks,

Murray
