COPY CREATED AND CREATED BY FIELDS TO NEW LIST

Hello Community,

 

Need to copy a list from one site collection to another.  The "Created" and "Created by" fields need to stay in tact from original list to another.  However, when the destination list is chosen, those 2 columns do not appear, though the 2 column names appears under Dynamic Content. 

Any ideas on how to have the 2 columns appear in the flow?

Thanks,

V/R

Hello @chudson002 ,

these are SharePoint system columns, they're filled out automatically when the item is created in the list. If you want to keep the information from the original list, I'd create 2 custom columns in the second list and store the original Created (date column) and Created by (Person or Group column) into the custom lists.
