Is it possible to update information from one choice field into another choice field in a different list? Or do you need to copy it to a text field?

Here's the Update List Item action when I try to setup:

Here's the Workflow Suspended error that I get when I checked the workflow status: Workflow Suspended Error

Is it possible to update information from one choice field into another choice field in a different list?

Yes, it's possible and I applied this scenario multiple times on my side.

But you should be aware of the value of first choice field should be within the list of values of the second choice field in the other list.

For Example

The Choice field values in the second List are

  • M.Qassas1
  • M.Qassas2

And you are tried from the first list workflow to update the Choice field in another list with another value not in (M.Qassas1,M.Qassas2) so the workflow will fail.


By the way, based on your updated image below,

enter image description here

The workflow will also fail because the ID can't be Status value (string), it should be a number.

  • The value field that I listed in the Find the List Item at the bottom, should be "Item Status" as in the other list. I simply assigned the wrong field when I was making the screen shot example. Both "Item Status" fields are choice fields with options of "Closed" "Open". If I change the updated list value to "Current Item: Item Status", what would the "Field" value need to be to make this work? – cbbrown Jul 24 '17 at 12:12
  • Also, I'm not sure why this is so puzzling to me, but for the Find the List Item at the bottom, why wouldn't both entries be "Item Status". The way I see it is you are choosing the field in the "User Assigned Invoices" list and assigning it the value of the "Item Status" from the current item in the original list, why wouldn't that work?? – cbbrown Jul 24 '17 at 12:39
