I have built a flow which gathers users vehicle information, and then uses this information to create an individual parking permit document and emails it to the user. The flow is triggered by a form response and then gets a template word document and updates the file properties with data entered into the form. The file properties are inserted into the document and the file content is then emailed to the user as an attachment.
This flow has been working absolutely fine, no issues with the flow at all.
However, if a user opens the attachment on an iOS device, the file properties are not updated and they only see the template file, not the file containing their data.
For issues with the mobile apps, you should contact the Flow support team. To submit a support request visit https://flow.microsoft.com/support/ and click the Contact Support link in the bottom right hand corner of the page:

Hi @Wheatcroft ,
Could you share a screenshot of your flow?
How about the user opens the attachment on other devices or on Web browser? Will they see the updated properties?
Please share more details on your flow to help reproduce this issu.
Thanks for your reply, Please see below screen shot of the flow;
The file properties are updated which then updates the file content;
The file content is then emailed as an attachment to the user, containing their unique permit.
The flow runs as expected without issue.
However, when the user opens the attachment on a PC/Laptop the user sees the correct file with the updated file properties/content. If the user opens the attachment on and Apple/Android device, the properties are not updated, they can only view the template document.
We're currently telling users that they must open the permit on a laptop or PC, but we'd like to resolve this if possible.
