Outlook Trigger - When task is completed not working



I have an issue with a flow a created. The flow is scheduled to create a task in outlook (which it does successfully) and when this task is marked as complete it then sends a Teams message to my colleagues notifying them that the task is completed. I created this flow last week and all was working fine each day, however it appears to have broken today and is having trouble registering that a task has been marked as complete.


I've tested the flow with and without this trigger, with different conditions, changing the connection and turning the flow on and off - even deleting the flow and starting from scratch. Each time it gets stuck and continues to say "Running" in the flow status a long time after the task is marked as complete. I'll note here that all other steps in the flow run as they should.


I'd be glad to hear if anyone else is suffering this issue and to know it's not just me, any fixes would be a bonus!

Hi @zcahwby ,

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

I have made a test on my side, it doesn't has the issue you have mentioned.

Could you suggest a way I might be able to troubleshoot this issue? I've tried again this morning with no luck - the flow just hangs on running after I have marked the task as complete. 

@v-zhos-msft  Sorry, I forgot to provide a screenshot of my flow configuration it's as below:
