Flow Fails Sharepoint Update Item action when you add a new People Picker column in SP.

I have created a system that is now so complex, that adding a people picker field will devastate my system!  I need to know if this bug has been fixed.  This is the bug that causes your Sharepoint Update Item actions to fail when you add a new column that is a People Picker.  The only way I found to fix this is to delete the Get Item action, and recreating it.  My PowerApps system now uses over 20 flow commands... Each one of them will fail if I add a People Picker.  I need help!  I need a more reliable way to work around this problem, or to know for certainty that I can add a field without this happening.  I know there has been probably 2 Flow updates now.  Has this problem been addressed??

Re: Flow Fails Sharepoint Update Item action when you add a new People Picker column in SP.

Hi @ martinav,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

Do you want the "Update Item" action in your flow would be updated automatically when you add a new column in sharepoint list?

You could only delete the action and recreate the action in your flow to achieve your needs currently.

 

Updating the "Update Item" action in your flow automatically when a new column is added in sharepoint list is not supported in Microsoft flow currently,I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Re: Flow Fails Sharepoint Update Item action when you add a new People Picker column in SP.

I added this as an idea as you requested.  However,  really consider this a bug in the software.  It is not an really an idea request.  An idea to eliminate an error is not really much of an idea at all.  All that is needed to create this error is to add a People Picker column.  You do not even have to update that field in the action, and it errors.  This is a problem that takes HOURS for me to resolve.  I need a fix, not an idea.

 

Thank you.
