When retrieving O365 Group ID, could the Group Connector also retireve the associated Planner ID?

We use Groups and associated Planners for each of our projects.  We also use one large sharepoint list to track the projects. When a new item is created on that list, or specific changes are made, we would like to create specific tasks on the associated Group's Planner.  I can pull the correct Group ID inthe Flow from the Group Connector based on the Sharepoint List Item, but I can't get the associated Planner ID, which we need in order to use the planner connector to automate the task creation in the correct Group Planner.  Is there a way to do this?  If not please update the Group Connector to also pull the associated Group Planner ID.  I would presume there could be a Planner ID as a retrieved Dynamic Content field in the Group Connector.  

 

For Example - Here is a typical Planner URL.  I don't want to go throguh and Manually pull each of the planner ID's for every one of our Group Planners.  We have 1000's of projects so that's not realistic.

Hi @neds,

 

In the list, do you have a column for the Planner Id? If yes, you could create a flow likes below to create a specific task on the associated plan Id.

 

In the SharePoint list, I am entering the Plan Id in the Title column, so I select the dynamic content Title for the Id field. When an item is created or modified, it will create a new task in the plan.

Thanks.  Unfortunately that's a work around that I am trying to avoid as it requires us to manually copy (ie copy form the URL) the Plan ID for each of the thousands of plans we have and then paste those into the thousands of List Fields.  We don't have to do that for a Group ID as that can be pulled directly from the Group Connector in the Flow.

Hi @neds,

 

Thanks for updating.

 

Could you share more details on "We don't have to do that for a Group ID as that can be pulled directly from the Group Connector in the Flow"?
