Marking a task complete in Planner with any trigger

Hi all - I'm pretty new to Power Automate, and I'm mostly trying to use it to make my work organization with Planner a little more seamless. A hurdle I've run into is figuring out how to update a dynamic type of task with pretty much any trigger. It's come up a couple of times but the thing I'd like to do now is this:


When any task is assigned to me from any plan, power automate creates a task for me on my "personal" board - it's a place to aggregate all the tasks across projects (I supervise 10- 12 projects at a time, with different people on each team, so my tasks are spread across many places). This is working fine. I realize ToDo kind of does this natively, but the interface doesn't work for how I deal with my tasks, Planner does.


My issue now is, I would like it if when I mark a task on my Personal board as complete, that Power Automate could go find the matching task in the other board and mark that as complete as well. I feel like an intermediate step like "list my tasks" or something might be the key to this, but I don't know how to set it up.


Any advice is appreciated! Even if this is maybe impossible.
