Create and assign Outlook tasks to someone else

It would be great to have an Outlook connector that enables me to create a task an assign to someone else. E.g. if a list item within a sharepoint list has been changed, assign todo to my colleague.

Perhaps to take this one step further, I would also think it useful that when the assigned task is completed it could be used to update a ShareList item to reflect the fact that the task has been completed.

Flow to define a task is not very useful if tasks cannot be assigned to the appropriate individual.  I'm trying to automate tracking of onboarding actions - the new hire, security, payroll, IT, benefits, etc.  Different people have responsiblity for performing actions. I can manage the onboarding task list in powerapp, but I need flow to create the tasks.

The same. I tried to create a flow for onboarding of new customers and employees in the company. To create it, it would be great to have possibility to assign task to a person using MS FLOW.

I totally agree with you, good idea!

SInce you can create a task in Outlook for yourself when a new item is added in a SharePoint list, you would think you can create Outlook tasks for someone else. It's just a different email to send it to. Has anything changed regarding this issue yet?
