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:

I would like to be able to trigger a notification to the original task creator upon completion. If a trigger could be task completion that would be great as well

Would like to trigger on task completion as well.

A Planner Trigger which fires off on create or update of a Task is what is needed

I am surprised that this is not available. I am making a notification for teams to get a notification on new tasks and so I have to make a very clunky workaround to make this happen.

Yep, need the trigger! Lots of colleagues want tasks assigned on Planner to appear in Outlook Tasks. Or does someone know a nice workaround?

I am creating a flow that i think will work. Create a list of all the task IDs in a sharepoint list. Then every five minutes compare the task list to the sharepoint list. If there is a new one it will send an alert and add it to the sharepoint list.

A trigger would be appreciated. Would like to be able to visualize some of the tasks into Power BI. Example - calculating task completion dates to create a burndown chart.

I need the trigger too, My "Teams" users want to use planner but until an email is sent to an assignee on task assignment this won;t be adopted. Even better a notification in the Team's Chat would be perfect!

We are currently rolling out this feature.

A trigger on task update, update a list item on SharePoint Online and send email notifications.  For example, when a task is updated, update a status field or assigned to info, on the SharePoint list item.  We may not want our users access to Planner, but they should have access to the SharePoint list that triggered the creation of the Planner task to begin with.
