Task reporting with option to approve and update tasks!

I'm relatively new to flow but would like to do the following:


Look at my tasks in Planner.  Ideally if I could somehow seperate out who the task is assigned to that'd be great.  I'd then grab these tasks and send out an Option Email for users to reply to.  Ideally they could post an update (Update the tasks details) and then click one of the options (Completed, Not Started, Behind).  

Once the user clicks one of those options it would then update the Planner with both the details and the feedback on completion (Completed, Not Started, Behind).  


I've gone down a lot of roads on this thus far.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @janus225,


I afraid that there is no any way to achieve your needs.


Getting the task "assign to user" is not supported in Planner connector in microsoft flow currently.

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Thank you so much for your response!  Is there a way to send out the entire Planner Plan's tasks in one email?  Instead of one email per task?  To the specified emails?
