Send an email when a Planner Task is completed within a particular bucket

I want to send an email when a planner task is completed within my last bucket named 'completed'.

Please could someone help?

You need to get the 'bucketId' of completed and then you can create a Trigger Condition like what is described in . One way you can GET 'bucketId'(s) is by using 'List Buckets'. 'bucketId' is also in the trigger action 'body'. By defining this Trigger Condition, the flow will only run when the expression evaluates to TRUE.




Thank you @ChrisMendoza,

Could you please show this in a flow example as I am new to Power Automate? 

I really wish I could find the video where I learned how to access items in JSON 🤔. The code snippet I provided is using the below method to GET the 'buckedId'.

  • Task is completed in the bucket that I need the 'bucketId' for; your completed bucket
  • The outputs of the trigger is triggerOutputs()
    • headers
    • body
      • a whole bunch of details regarding the task are found here, specifically the 'bucketId' for your request

Outputs > body > bucketId is the navigation of the JSON


The above code snippet with values from this example flow run:


equals checks whether both values, expressions, or objects are equivalent. So, the expression asks, "Is the bucketId value of the completed task equal to this string value?". True or False. Within a trigger condition, a true statement actually runs the flow. In a false statement, the flow does not run.
