Enter the name of a Flow generated list item

I am using the template "Keep track of anything using a SharePoint list" to capture location information at the press of a button in a SharePoint list.  The issue I'm having is that everytime the Flow creates a new list item, it populates the Title field with the same name, ("New Item" by default).  I can change this in the Flow to whatever I want it to be, but it will still be whatever I change it to for each list item entry as opposed to having a unique title for each entry.  Is there a way to allow the user to enter a Title in the Flow so that each list item entry has a unique name?  Thanks.

Hi @Dave_H,

 

You could add a Text input in the Manually trigger and rebname the input title to "Title", and the you could choose the "Title" dynamic content of the trigger in the "Title" field of the "Create item" action.
