I would like to Auto Increment a Column using MS Flow in SharePoint Online List.

Any instructions on how to do that?

Followed many articles , but that does not use MS Flow, (typically covers using workflow)

  • What's the use case? There is no way to add column through Flow for now – Akshay Randive Aug 14 '17 at 0:57
  • @AkshayRandive Use case is , Already a column exists , I want to increment automatically whenever new item is created in SharePoint List. – John Zachariah Aug 14 '17 at 4:22

In that case you have to use Get Item Action of Flow and update the fields

enter image description here UPDATE you can use the above displayed actions.

  • I tried with Custom Action, but the point where i am stuck is how do i store the variable . The Logic is to get the ID(values from some other list) and store it in variable , increment to next value and assign the variable to my column. Can you please point how to do that? – John Zachariah Aug 14 '17 at 5:40
