Send an email when a Planner task is completed

Hello,

 

We are trying to use the "Send an email when a Planner task is completed" template and we want to send an email to the assignee on of the task when the task is completed. We've tried to use the "assignments Assigned to User Id" dynamic content on "To" on the send email (V2), but we are getting an error.

Hello,

 

You should try below. "assignments Assigned to User Id" returns an ID and not a UPN or email address.

 

Define a string variable.

Pass "assignments Assigned to User Id" in "Get User profile" action to get the UPN of the assignee on of the task.

Then set the variable from the above output, and then pass the variable to the send an email action.

Hope this helps !

In the flow Run History, can you check what value it is shows for "assignments Assigned to User Id" in the output of "When a task is completed" trigger? If it is blank, then Send Email action will throw an error as Send Email action must need atleast one email id.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Wow, this literally what we need. Yeah, we saw that we need a string or email on the "To" on send email, but we are not sure how.

 

Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you for your help as well 🙂
