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.

It is tough to wait for a specific new feature to be implemented in Microsoft Flow, specially in this case, since current Planner REST API supports adding checklists to Planner tasks via Update Task Details method.

There are several other other ideas marked as NEW (i.e. not evaluated yet by Microsoft) asking for other features present in Planner REST API, so I was thinking on an overall solution that would let us enjoy all Planner features currently available via Planner REST API and are not available in Microsoft Flow Planner connector yet.


Can we have more chances to catch the attention of Flow Product Managers by concentrating votes from all these ideas into an overall solution? If you think it is worth a try, you can vote this overall idea here

Agreed, this feature or any way to autofill each bucket with tasks and checklists would be extremely useful.

BUMP. Microsoft make this happes ASAP. Flow needs to compliment it's connectors and provide the ability to use all features that a human performs with mouse-clicks and keyboards. Thanks!

I would like to be able to either create the checklist from within flow, OR referecea template checklist if one is available.

Creating recurring Planner tasks in Flow is not entirely useless...but not nearly as useful as it could be because I can't create checklists with the recurring task.  Editing each monthly task and adding the checklist items removes the automation benefit of using Flow...


Please implement this, or better yet, just build recurrence into Planner itself like To-Do.

Would love to have this feature! It would be so beneficial to be able to automatically create a task with a pre-determined checklist. Manually creating Tasks with the same checklist is very tedious when trying to create them for several employees that are working on similar projects.

Hey Microsoft,


Can we add this? Please?

This was requested in 2017 and it's 2019 and it hasn't been added?
