Ability to create planner checklist from Flow
From Flow we can create a task in Planner, I think it would be a good feature to also be able to create the checklist within that task.
I'm not sure why this feature is not really available in the first place. Why Microsoft deliberately remove this minor yet important function. Why make MS Flow so complicated? It would benefit all if you would just simply add this function.

It has been 2 years since the idea was published.... I am a bit disappointed now. It will be a great feaure if it is added.

did we get an answer on this?

This is a very important feature. I would hope that if the Planner team ever deploys recurring tasks in Planner, that this would be included. However the ability to create a Planner checklist in Flow is very important

Is this feature even beeing considered by Microsoft?

This would be a very functional add to "create a task" in planner.
I too would use this feature. Without it, I am manually replicating the same three-step checklist in every task that Flow creates.

Definitely need this feature for a major onboarding exercise. For each transition task, there are 3 steps that hundreds of people need to perform and these same 3 steps need to be listed in every task that is created. Since we'll have about 4000 new cards, I'm creating a spreadsheet with the new card details, loading it into a SharePoint list, then using Flow to create the cards. With so many cards, adding 3 steps to each card ends up requiring around 12000 edits.
Flow is used to automate repetitive tasks - in this case, 12000 edits - so leaving out fields leaves us subject to manual editing.
Please add checklist items to Flow when creating Planner cards. In fact, just include all fields that you could add manually.

Has this been resolved anywhere - very important
checklist is really important as it is unhandy to have many separate tasks all around the screen. Also there is much more objects to manipulate with, if I want to make them reccurent.
What good is the task without the checklist? Please consider adding this feature!
I share this challenge and applauds this feature
