Outlook tasks to planner

Is ther a way, to fully link Outlook tasks to Planner? I currently manage multiple projects, for multiple people, in Outlook. 

I currently create tasks, then assigned them to vaious employees, who update them as they go. Fields used in Outlook:

Categories
Subject

Company

Assigned to

Status

% Complete

Start Date

Due Date

Date Completed

 

I want to link these, so when I create a task in Outlook, it creates in Planner. Also, after I assign a task in Outlook, and a user updates any of the fields above, it will also update in Planner. I would also like planner updates to sync to outlook. Could somebody help me with this?

Re: Outlook tasks to planner

Hi @Bobo ,

 

Do you want to sync tasks between Outlook tasks and Planner?

 

Currently, Flow doesn’t have a trigger for When a task is modified, so I’m afraid that it might be not possible to update a planner task when an Outlook task is updated.

There is a similar request at here, please vote the idea at here:

Further, fields such as Categories, Company, Date Completed are not available for Planner tasks. Please vote the similar request at here:

Best regards,

Mabel
