How to move a Planner Task from one bucket to another via Flow

Hi all

I was wondering if there is any option to move a Planner Task from one bucket to another via Microsoft Flow.

I guess the way to do it would be to change Task Bucket Id, but I cannot find this option on Planner connector documentation, neither in Update Task action block nor in Update Task Details.

 

Moreover, an even though I haven't tested it yet, it looks like the Planner REST API update task offer the option to change Task Bucket ID, so I was wondering whats the best approach to invoke it.

I mean, Planner connector does not currently offer a "Send an HTTP REquest via Planner" action block similar to "Send an HTTP Request via Sharepoint", right?

 

Thank you in advance!

HI @efialttes 

Currently Flow does not support changing (interchanging) of bucket ids in Planner. A way to move tasks from a bucket to another would be to get the task and then create a new one in the target bucket and delete the old one but then, Flow does not support deleting of a task in Planner too. 

 

By does not support, I mean Flow does not support these as direct actions and there is no direct action to send http request to Planner like there is one for SharePoint. 

 

In this case, you might want to try sending an HTTP request action in general and invoke the action throughh the API requests. 

 

You can post an idea to include these actions for planer here:

Thanks @yashag2255 for confirming my hypothesis.

I have found an idea posted for such purpose here

Moreover, I have realized there are 10+ ideas requesting features that are available on Planner REST API, but not yet in Flow Planner connector. So I have posted a new idea, that is to replicate "Send HTTP Request via Sharepoint" for Planner
