NewsPost created by means of FLOW always has (static) Created Date of original Manual News Post template.

My Employers wanted me to created an Employee of the year site with the ability for users of the company to Nominate a user by way of simple Form. (Name: and Comments:)


Once an Item is added to SharePoint List (User is Nominated) I have a FLOW that creates a News Item page.


I managed to get this to work by hitting F12 while actually publishing a NEWS Page manually called ["PlaceHolder.aspx"] and using the metadata in the "SavePageDraft" bloc.


Everything works fine including displaying "Profile photo" .


The issue I am facing is that when the News post is created using FLOW, the "Creation Date" is always the date of the original [PlaceHolder] example: Lets say I manually created the original [PlaceHolder] page 2 days ago, ALL newly created News posts using FLOW will have the Creation date of ( 2 days ago).


IF I create a manual News post, the Creation Date is what it should be (Now)

This makes the News post out of order, Newly created News posts will go to the botton of the list.


Please see the attachments I have included to see the FLOW blocs expanded for your consideration and examination in hopes whoever looks can spot what I am doing wrong.


I think the issue is probably in the "Post to Copy" Bloc where my Template page (Original Manually created News Post) in this case "Florence-Barret Nominated.aspx" Copies to Site Pages as News post.


It could also be in the "SavePageDraft" bloc, at this point I am not sure.


I would really appreciate help on this.


Thanks in advance

Looking through this there has to be something with inheriting data from the SharePoint list item. Looking though the logic you have written I cant determine where it is exactly coming from though. This might be a better question for the Microsoft Support team. I'll include a link below on opening a case with them if you would like to go down that route. Otherwise if any other communities members have any idea feel free to chime in.


If you would like to create a ticket with Microsoft Customer Support here is a link on how to do so:
