Planner Trigger: When a task is modified

Currently there are only three triggers for Planner, when a task is created, completed, or assigned to me.


The most powerfull trigger would be:

When a task is modified!

Afterwards with conditions you would not even need the two triggers for "completed", or "assigned to me".


All attributes of Planner tasks should be available in Flow, of course...

Hi All, 


Is there something about this trigger ? 

I think what is needed mostly is the "When Planner Task is modified or updated" whatever the field of the task.


Many thanks for answer.

This seems like it would have been the very first trigger created after when a task is created.

I've just started exploring the option of moving from Excel in to a Planner / Sharepoint List with MS Flow handling the workflow. I was just as surprised as all of you appear to be that such an obvious trigger is missing in Planner. Having a trigger for when a Planner task is modified would allow us to:

 - Update the progress status in the corresponding task in a Sharepoint List

 - Update fields such as start date and due date, and amend comment logs in the SP list (such as 'user amended the due date', or 'task was reassigned by xxx').

 - Trigger custom email events where needed

 - Track events such as the user deleting a task, renaming it, or moving it in to a different bucket.

Hopefully MS adds this soon, seems like such a big opportunity missed to not have this trigger.
