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:

I agree. We would like to use Forms to capture new employee information and then have Flow create an onboarding task in Planner that has a checklist. 


I suppose a task template for Planner, that includes a checklist we set up, would be ideal as well.

I am facing the same Scenario, I need automatic Checklist every time a Task is created, did you figure out how to do it?

At this point, I don't see any way to add an action for Planner that allows me to control the checklist field.  😞

This would be awesome, setting up several tasks when only one or two would suffice from lack of checklists... not cool!

This would be awesome. I've been searching for like 10 minutes to basically find this thread. Bumping this to the top-baby!

This would be very helpful for us.

Would be very useful -- I create template cards in trello and copy them for New EE setup, New Computer Setup, etc. that all have long checklists in them.

We need all new Planner tasks created by Flow to have checklists pre-populated. This will make sure the entire team follows the same process when completing a task and there is detailed visibility into tasks that are in progress.

It would be useful to have a flow that either creates a new task -- including checklist -- or preferably can copy an existing task with checklist already set up and assign it to a user. Currently you can create a task, but I have a usecase for the Planner Task Checklist functionality and it would be great to have that as part of a flow.
