Identify list item to update using columns instead of ID

Hello:

 

I am trying to update a list in SharePoint when a MS Form is completed.

Using the Form/SharePoint Template for Flow it requests a List Item ID to properly update the list item.

 

How can I configure this so that when the MS Form is completed.

It updates whichever list item is associated with that user and that quiz (form). These are both columns on my list and would identify one list item ONLY.

 

My question in general. Is how can I use columns to identify the specific list item I would like to update as it will not be the same everytime.

 

Thank you,

Hi @ryanLaPorta_SCG,

 

It seems that this is not available in Flow so far.

Thanks for confirming Mona.

Can this post be used as a request for this feature? Or is that another community.

Also, looks like I am headed back into SharePoint Designer.

 

Would you by any chance know off the top of your head if this is accomplishable in Power Apps? In reviewing Power Apps it seems like this is more of a create a small database thing but maybe I haven't spent enough time with it.

 

I am trying to move to the more future prove ways of manipulating SharePoint but it seems our need always requires that one extra step that only SP Designer Workflows or purchasing a third party Add ON can provide.

 

(Random side not, feel free to ignore: I used VBA to create a robust access database. Coding is a lot easier for me than the gui in in most Microsoft apps. Is there any coding langauge that can be used to build workflows in SharePoint? I've read that people have used Javascript but I am not yet grasping how this can be implemented for SharePoint)

 

Thank you,
