I am relatively new to using Microsoft Flow. I am attempting to connect Outlook and Microsoft Teams, more specifically, I am looking to automate the creation of a task in microsoft planner within teams whenever I flag an email in outlook and it goes into my tasks.
I have stumbled across the following template and edited it - I seem to not be getting any errors but it also does not seem to be working. Is there any way that I can fix this or if there is a better way of doing this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The template is working fine for me. Can you share a screenshot of your PA flow in edit mode, so we can inspect the values you added?
Hope this helps
Hi @mm-mace ,
Have you made any changes to the Flow template? Please consider sharing a full screenshot of the Flow configuration so that we can analyze possible causes.
Hi @v-bacao-msft @efialttes
Thank you for your responses. If you see, all I have done is changed:
1. "When a task is added" - added the "Tasks" Folder (I am assuming from outlook tasks)
2. Under "Create a Task" for "Plan Id" - added the "Tasks" field
3. Under "Create a Task" for "Bucked Id" - added the "Emails" field (This is a bucket in my planner)
4. Under "Assigned User Ids" - I have included my email
I am hoping that when I flag an email as below, and it goes to my To-Do List and then I move it to "Tasks" that this then automatically gets added into the "Emails" bucket in Planner. There is an issue which is that I do not see "To-Do List" in the Flow template when I try to select the folder under "When a task is added". Maybe this has got to do with it?
Hi @efialttes @v-bacao-msft
Now it has worked but my only problem is that I need to find a way to automatically add tasks to the "Tasks" folder instead of the "To-Do list" here - when I flag an email, it goes to "To-Do List" rather than "Tasks". The other solution would be to select "To-Do List" in the "When a task is created" part of the flow.
Let us know if you succeed replacing Tasks folder on your trigger and using To-Do List instead.
If not, my suggestion is to replace current "When a task is created" trigger and use 'When an email is flagged' trigger instead
I don't think I can because it does not appear in the dropdown in the trigger titled "When a task is created".
Is there any way to make the To-Do List appear or instead make the flagged items go to the Tasks list?
I am hoping someone can help me. I have created a flow to create a planner task whenever I receive an email with a specific subject line. However, I only want the task to created ONCE. What happens currently is, the original task gets created but then an employee who will follow up with me at a later point with the same subject creates additional tasks. Is there something I can do to only create a unique tasks?
My humble suggestion is to open a new topic with your issue description and a screenshot from your current flow design. Most superusers tend to pay attention to new unanswered topics, and this one is already marked as solved.
