HI @200okSolutions 

 

Can you please share more details on this one? If you can share a screenshot of the flow that you are trying to build and point the area where you need assistance, we will be able to assit you better.

Hi Yash,

 

Below is the output which we are getting of the task details.

 

Output from flow :-

Label values in Planner :-

In that applied categories object the selected labels are defined as Category1, Category2 and so on. But the names of labels are defined as per our requirement. We would like to get that user defined names dynamically rather than Category1 like indexes.

Hi @200okSolutions 

Got it. Right now flow does not return you those values. But as a workaround, in any case under a bucket, all the tasks will have the same category. You can create an array with the format as :

[
"category1" : "To be started", 
"category2" : "To be Completed"
]

And then use an apply to each loop/ contains statement to find the appropriate tag for the category set to true.

Hope this Helps!

Re: Get Planner categories value using Microsoft flow

Yash, we have already done using IF conditions for temporary use. But we want that values to be fetched from Flow as

 

"appliedCategories":{

"Not Started":true,

"Completed":true

}

 

Is there any solution to get those values dynamically.

Hey @200okSolutions 

 

No! currently that action is not supported. You might want to have a look at the idea posted on the forum (I sahred the URL in the last response) if you have not already checked that. 

 

Hope this Helps!
