Populating an existing word document template with a Sharepoint list Flow

Hi! 

I am trying to update some "plain text control fields" in an existing Word Document (.docx) with the Power Automate Word Connector in a flow created from within the Sharepoint library holding the file, based on the flow template "Complete a custom action for the selected file".

 

In this case, the Power Automate action is not showing the fields in the word doc, but instead the label dynamicFileSchema which I am not sure how to understand it.

 

I would greatly appreciate some help on whether my intent is possible at the moment, or any suggestions out there.

Thanks!

@CARLOS_R - I have noticed a lag between updating the Word template and when the plain text fields appear as options in Power Automate. Have you tried removing the Word template step and re-adding it? Do the fields appear then?

Hi @PowerBack19 , thanks for the comment. I tried deleting the Populate Word Template action and creating it again, but the document fields still don't appear in the action, only a text box for dynamicFileSchema  which I don't understand its purpose.
