When using the Update Task Details in Flow there is an additional field called "Reference Alias".
I couldn't find any info about it - what I can do it? What is it for?
Can I use it to reference SharePoint items? Can it be used for something else?
The References Alias column is used to describe the reference, as is is shown in the link below:
The field is a Non-required field,and just used to record the data, if you don't want to record the References Alias, you could leave the field blank.
Could you elaborate further? I'm having a similar problem figuring out how to use the "Update Task Details" action. Perhaps, could you provide an example of how to appropriately use these functions?
What I'm trying to do is create a flow that moves tasks between buckets based on their Due Date. I have buckets label "Today", "Tomorrow", "This Week", and "Later". My Flow is:
- Recurrence trigger
- List my plans
- List my buckets
- List my tasks
- Apply to Every [Task]
-- Condition @lessOrEquals(items('LoopThroughTasks')?['dueDateTime'], adddays(utcnow(), int(1)))
-- if Yes, I want to change the bucket to "Today"
-- if No,... go further down the rabbit hole with additional conditions...
Update Task Details (V1) does not appear to support changing the bucket. Update Task Details (V2) is completely incomprehensible.
Explaining a reference with the word reference does indeed not help us. Can you please provide some concrete example of how/why/when/where one would use it.
I think many of us would like to get to the Taks checklist via that venue, but that seems not possible, or is it?
I was also confused with the description. After some testing, I realized "Reference Alias" seems to be the "Text to display" when you add a file link to a Planner task manually
Regarding Task checklist, I havent found the way to read it/update it via flow Planner connector. Some if the missing functionalities in this connector are available via Planner REST API, you can read and vote the following idea if interested on such approach
Hope this helps
