Assign tasks to multiple users using flow. any idea how to develop a flow to include this

I don’t know how much you know, but basically you just add the planner connector, get the tasks so you can point out the task itself in the flow and then use the assign action!

@adam deltingerHi Adam thanks for your message.

So my requirement is to use MS flow to assign tasks to people.

Instead of manually assigning tasks to people using MS planner

Hi! Ok. But what would your trigger be? Flows can be manual too but it won’t add much value doing this in a manual flow Instead of planner itself

@planner9967hey so in the flow that I have created my trigger is "when an email in inbox is flagged".

So what my flow does is, it goes ahead and pastes the email content in the notes section of the task.

Creates a start and end date and copies the subject of the mail as the name of the task.

But what is missing is assigning tasks to particular users or a group ( lets say a MS team).

For now I need to manually update and assign tasks once they are created by my flow.

You can continue to build that flow of that same trigger! You must assign by users though
