Trigger for new item in planner

It'll be useful to have some Triggers for tasks in Planner, not just actions that are executed based on triggers from elsewhere.


Potential triggers:

  • When a new task is created
  • When a task is assigned to you
  • When a task is put in a category
  • Etc.



Status: Completed

Triggers for Planner are now available, read more here:

If there is no way to sync planner tasks with the outlook tasks, at least let us do it by Flow. For now I will try to do it by the time based trigger and see how it goes.

This is something that definitely should be implemented soon...


Planner could be the best collaborative tool ever if it is synced to Outlook tasks and Outlook calender. But as a standalone solution, it is of very low value!

Can I suggest the triggers:

- "When a task is created"

- "When a task is modified"


They'd be adaptable for most scenarios I think. Currently flows need to be triggered on a recurring schedule which is high-latency and flow intensive.

If you flip the idea around... from the calendar to a task in planner it works... I currently have this done for myself so I can track progress on projects that I can complete... but I yet to see the 'on planer task complete' trigger happen. (internally we have to email out to a distribution list when we start the project and finish it)

Yep, for each new task I option for a folder (with matching name) to be created in the Planner's SPO doc library, so need new Planner task as a trigger!  thanks

This may already be a feature, but how come I am incapable of generating task-items within a created plan?

yes! needed: new Planner-Tasks triggers Onenote to create Onenote-Task

I would like to propose a trigger for Planner when a task is updated (i.e., "% completed" from some value of x to y or x to 100%). I want to execute an action namely alert (i.e., email, update sharepoint list item, etc) whenever someone updates a task.

I would like to see Planner tasks as a trigger to export data on completion and total tasks. Internally, we submit action plans. If I use the planner to manage my own personal tasks, right now I don't see a way to export that information to share internally.
