Is it possible to change an existing sharepoint task list into a custom list?  Have a group where we originally created a task list (5 years ago) and want to see if switching them to PowerAutomate would fix some current automated email issues, but PowerAutomate cannot pull in the dynamic information needed.

Thanks

A Task list is a list it still work fine. What field can you not pull? Sometimes it won't pull up in the option but if you specify in the custom value it should still pull up. Otherwise the answer is no to the original question thou :). But you should still be able to use it thou!

@Chris Webb 

I know you can cut and paste the direct link to the task list because out of the box it cannot find them,  but how do you get it to pull in the dynamic values in the body of the email when using "send an email"? It states that there there is no dynamic content available.  They need to pull in information for the following columns:

 

 

ID number

Project Number

Customer

Unit

Target Due Date

Status
