Copy List 1 to List 2 (includes multi selection column)

Hello,

 

I am trying to copy List 1 information to List 2. The issue I run into is one of my column in list 1 is a multi selection column and I can't figure out how to copy them over.

@ToddM11 use the create item action inside the Apply to each action instead creating separate loop.

Hi @ToddM11 ,

 

you were almost done. You have to be careful with the loops, if you align them in the right order your flow will work. 

 

A notice from my site, add an Empty Array Variable to your flow. You need to reset the array after each time you created an item. Otherwise you will append all choices to all of your columns. 

Also make sure that your target list has the same values or check in the column settings that you can add new items

Again the loop :

Hello,

 

I did that and it was working fine until I got to the append array variable and create item. It keeps putting the create item in an apply to each once I select the title. Not sure why it's doing that.
