Flow to update SharePoint List Choice column



For some reference, I am working on a PowerApp project where people submit their data to two SharePoint lists on submission: Visitor list and a Data list. The visitor list contains the person's ID and general contact information, while the guest list pulls that visitor list ID into a guest ID column and records the person's data for things like why they came and what group they are associated with. The group association column is a choice column, to allow them to select from specific pre-set options within the PowerApp form. When a new guest submits the powerapp, the group association gets placed on the data list.


What I am trying to do is have a flow populate that group association on the Visitor list record that has the ID which matches the guest ID on the data list. Then when they come back as a returning guest (Note: the powerapp does not ask group association for returning guests and only submits to the data list), the flow will pull the group association from the visitor list record that has the ID matching the guest ID and then update the data list record's group association to match the one that is listed in the record on the visitor list.


Where I am having trouble is getting Flow to recognize the affiliation from the data list and submit it to the visitor list properly and vice versa for returning guests.

Hi @ngreen ,

It seems you want to update the choice column value in the Data list from the visitor list based on the ID.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

I'm somewhat confused by your Flow. You have it triggering when something gets created on the visitor list, grabbing information from the data list, and then updating the data list? I'm new so maybe I am misreading your Flow.
