Choice multi-select being overwritten by flow

I have a number of different flows undertaking various different workflows in to one sharepoint list.

 

One of the columns in that sharepoint list is a choice column with multiselect turned on.

 

This column is being overwritten with the first value every time one of my flows runs as that is the default selection in "Update item" in a flow.

I don't see a way around this other than doing a "Get item" finding out what the existing selections are and populating the multiselect in the flow every time. It seems a bit of a long-hand way to stop it from overwriting with a default selection. 

 

Has anyone experienced this or got any ideas?

Re: Choice multi-select being overwritten by flow

In think I may have answered my own question. It looks like the column had a default value of "None" which had been confused the actual "None" you use when you do not want a default value at all, so in effect there were two "None"s to choose from and the wrong one was selected... I think any how
