I don’t think a SharePoint group has an O365 account for FLOW to use. I believe FLOW can only find licensed O365 accounts.

Hi,

 

What puzzled me is why are the SharePoint groups presented on the list , if it does not support SharePoint groups in SharePoint Tasks ?

Hi @ TelmoC,

 

 

Do you create the tasks form sharepoint Apps as screenshot below?

I have made a test on my side to create task in sharepoint apps,and when I add the "Create item" action in the flow,

I couldn't see the Assigned To Claims field in the "Create item" action as your screenshot,so I couldn't test it with flow on my side.

I have made a test to create a task on sharepoint and assgin the task to a sharepoint group successfully, the tasks as screenshot below:

However,the people in the sharepoint group wouldn't recieve an email which notify them a task is assigned to them.

Hi Alice,

 

You have to set the field assigned to to not allow multiple values otherwise you wont see the property in flow,
