I am trying to use the activity "Updated Item in SharePoint list" activity in the Microsoft flow catalogue.

The case is I want to only update a few fields for example a Status column.

The problem is that flow sets all other fields either to blank or its default value unless you specify to update all other properties to be updated, which I dont want to.

Any suggestions?

Just use the item variable to set it to current value. It happens to me on some but not all field types.

  • Item variable would have worked fine if the item being updated, and the item with which the flow is being triggered would have been same.But they are different. Mar 14, 2019 at 15:56
