Populate Word Document with Check Boxes

Hi everyone,

 

I am aware that Microsoft does not currently allow the functionality to click check boxes from a form, but I found this post from 3 years ago that explains a workaround. Solved: Populate Word with Checkbox - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

I followed this video and created a flow just like it Microsoft Forms to PDF without Premium Actions in Power Automate - YouTube

I have a document loaded into SharePoint with all the respective column names and an exact replica of the flow he showed in this video. 

 

See below for what I tried to add. 

 

On reply 15/18 I tried to replicate and add in a condition as that user did way back, but rather than the checked box populating the template where the document property quick part is; the word "yes" or "no" populates it. I am unable to change the template and it needs to be a check box. There are multiple check boxes, but if I could get one functioning correctly I could get the rest.

 

If anyone could assist that would be great.

Hi Jag,

 

Check out the first link in my post. I wasn't able to replicate it and get it working as expected, but I did make somewhat decent progress and was half-way there. I stopped working on it as I changed jobs actually.

 

The post from 3 years ago may help you as I was on my way to figuring it out.

 

Thanks,
