I have two SharePoint lists:

List 1 - has item details List 2 - has shipping details

As one item can be shipped to different locations, List 1 has one to many relationship with List 2. I have a trigger a flow button in List 1 to create a shipping list item in List 2, with following details:

Shipped date NumberofShippedItems Shipped to Location Courier TrackingNumber

As the title suggests, I need "Shipped to Location" to be a choice field to pass as user input as the user clicks the trigger button in List 1. However I dont see that in "For a selected Item" trigger in Power Automate. Is there a workaround for this? People can make mistakes while entering locations (we use two letter notations assigned to each location).

Unfortunately, choice is not yet supported as an input in the "for a selected file" trigger.


We can display a choice field when triggering a Flow by using the Input. After it's added, we need to click on the "..." button and then click "Add a drop-down list of options"
