Include Checklist Within Planner Task When Created in Flow

We use Flow to create recurring tasks in Planner.  It would be helpful to be able to include a checklist within this task.

Status: Completed

You can work with checklists in the Planner connector - read more here:

@plb , while slightly off topic, it was a part of the general user request in the feature, which at least has a small work around.

I must have missed it in the "general user request" - everything I saw (viewing pages 1-2 and 6-8 - may have missed some comments in between) had to do specifically with checklists. In any event, it's not a big deal. I just saw her comment saying that she had found a solution and spent the time to come looking because the checklist is something I still need - then I got here and realized her solution was to another problem.


In any event, not a big deal. Just wanted to make sure we stayed on topic as much as possible.

It's cool @plb


By the time Microsoft gets to this uservoice request it will be 2 years old and they too would miss the context of what was being requested and then ignore or implement something totally different.

Definitely a very useful function to added.  Agreed.

I hope MS can see this as a much needed feature.  I've been trying to find a workaround to make this work without requiring Admin right through a custom connector for Microsoft Graph API.

Almost 3 years later... still not in place

I brought this up in no less than 2 MSBA Summit QA questions.  I was told that it makes absolute sense and that it would be given to the Connectors team. 


I tried to insert a picture of the conversation but that seems to not work for me in edge.
