Updating a checklist from planner

Hi, 

 

I have a planner connector in my app and I'm trying to update the subtasks.

 

Is it possible to tick of a checklist item from a task?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @MathiasGijsels ,

Do you want to update the checklist item for a specified task(from planner) in a Canvas app?

 

If yes, you can use Flow to help you achieve this purpose. I did a test on my side for you reference.

1. I have a gallery called “Gallery2” that shows my tasks in a plan.

2. There is a checklist item called “complete testA” inside task1, and I want to update this checklist item.

3. Create a new “Instant cloud flow”:

4. Create this flow like below(if you have more than one checklist items for one task, you should type the“Checklist Title” manually in below flow. if you have just one checklist item, you can directly use the variable):

5. Go back to the app, add a button and set its OnSelect property to(the name of my flow is “Task_checklist”, you can also directly enter task_id here):

 

Task_checklist.Run(Gallery2.Selected.id)

This time, if you select task1 in the gallery and then click the button, its checklist item will be updated.

If you select task2 and click the button, task2's checklist item will be updated:
