Flow to copy data from one column to another

I have a sharepoint library with a calculated column which is Issue Date

 

As calculated columns cant be used for quick parts, I want to copy the date from that column to another column named Approval Date so I can enter that using quick parts into the footer of documents.

 

Can anyone let me know the steps I need to take to build this flow when issue date is created or updated please?

Andrea,

 

It works the same in a library. However, I had to select Enter Custom Value for the List Name field.

Then, in the Update Item action, I had to click "See more" to select my calculated column.

Good luck!

Hi @AndreaBurgess ,

 

The function to check column's update is not supported in microsoft flow currently, flow could only check for the item's update.

You could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:
