Recurring Tasks in Dynamics 365 using Power Automate #lesscode

In Dynamics 365, Appointment Activity has recurrence feature. But what if business has a requirement to have the same functionality when using a Task Activity, like specifying a recurring pattern & dates?

Today I will share with you a simple approach on how you can create a custom recurrence feature in Task Activity using the power of Power Automate.

I used Custom Fields, a Workflow & 2 Power Automate Flows. I also used workflow extension from a Dynamics 365 Workflow Hero, Jason Lattimer.

I added a few more custom fields to hold daily & weekly count for doing a loop in Power Automate.

Then I created a Two Option field called “Automate” that I can use on my Trigger Condition.

Daily Recurring

At the end, I make sure I decrement the Count just how we do it when writing codes. Then for weekly recurrence, I used Date Time connector – “Add a Time” and set it to add 1 Week.

And there you have it, a simple & working recurring task feature for your Task Activities.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you want to see the whole solution. Feel free to message me and I will send it straight to your mailbox.

Stay safe, everyone.
