Add Categories (Labels/Tags) to Planner Task

Add a field to the "Update Planner Task" flow to allow for editing/chaning/adding/removing the categories (also called labels or tags) of a task.

 

In the Microsoft Planner API documentation the field is called plannerAppliedCategories.

Also, it would be great to be able to set all the field values when the Planner task is created, rather than create it then have to update / modify it afterwards.

It would be great for me to be able to automatically add the bucket name as a label once it is placed in that bucket. 

 

We use buckets with user names so we can  pass tasks to the next person who needs to perform an action. It would be great if we could then tag with the users who have worked on the task automatically.

I can't believe this hasn't been implemented. There's so many people asking for this feature on various forums.

I spent a lot of time manually merging and collating spreadsheets this weekend, and was 100% relying on this feature. Oh well...

Absolutely - it's a no-brainer for me; so many people asking for this kind of functionality.

I believe I have solved this. I've submitted a two-post answer here (solution, then refinement):

That's a nice solution.

I'm a bit luckier in that the company I'm working for moved off Planner, and onto Trello and Jira, both of which have built-in automation tools that can take care of all that.
