Microsoft To-Do Triggers

I want to use Microsoft To-Do to help tackle my Planner tasks.  Looks like I can I get new Planner tasks into To-Do easy enough, but since To-Do has no triggers we don't have a way to tell Planner these items are done.

 

Seems like When a Task is completed is a pretty obvious trigger...  Hard to believe it even needs a suggestion.

We need Microsoft To-Do triggers not only for sync-up with Planner.

You can try this connector https://preview.flow.microsoft.com/en-en/connectors/shared_outlooktasks/outlook-tasks/ because To-Do using Outlook Tasks as a storage for to-dos

Thanks - that might be helpful.  Figuring the rest of the logic to make the task point to the planner task might be a pain.  I guess I could embed the Planner task ID into the comments section of the ToDo and then use a filter when I complete a task for it to find and check off the right one.

 

Of course, what is the point of ToDo if it is really just Outlook tasks...

 

 

Also, it appears Outlook tasks are a Premium feature - which seems absolutely outrageous since it is a 365 service...

I'd like to create a flow upon creation of a task that creates an option to schedule calendar time to complete the To-Do

Microsoft To-Do would be the perfect app for my needs if a trigger existed for "Task complete". It appears I can feed Microsoft To-Do a list of tasks from Dynamics 365 Activities, but there's no way to update Dynamics once the task is done!

Seriously, its not possible to use Flow in any way that would make sense.

There are so many triggers or Connectors missing that I expected as essential for process automation.

Here just a few example for Ideas I had before giving up on flow:

1. Write ToDo in a file after completion -> No ToDo/Outlook Tasks trigger without specific task id

2. Create Forms Form from SharePoint list entries -> No Forms Connector API (WTF no automatic form creation?!)

3. Automatically create flows -> No Flow connector or API SERIOUSLY?!

 

I have the feeling as if there is no one using flow. If such essential features are missing, whats the whole point of a workflow engine...

Here we are. A year has passed and nothing evolved from that state. Thats really sad. Its a pain to use To-Do alone, while all your team uses other tools. I have to mark my tasks as complete twice, one in To-Do and other in Asana that my team uses. This is a bummer.

This definitely needs to happen - considering that To-Do can be considered a "lite" individual contribtutor project/task management tool, not having Triggers is really ruining the possible integration possibilities... or should I say, ~flow~.
