Not sure if this is a Planner issue or a Flow issue, but hopefully someone who needs to see this will see it here. I'm looking at this Flow template to update a Planner task on a scheduled basis.

The "unique identifier" drop down does not present unique values, so it's not really possible to choose the task to update if you've got a lot of similar task names (which I do because I was using Planner to run multiple projects using a standard project template of mine).

To me is more a Flow issue...something also to take into account is that the Update a task in Planner is still in preview
