SharePoint list item field updated

I have a Sharepoint list that consist of Columns with the header of Employee Names + Employee Number.

example: ID eq Mike Lydick (0001)


I have another column with a header of Skills. I am trying to update specific field in the Employee Name column but on the row that matches a specific skill. In excel this is a simple Lookup function. I cannot seem to get the Flow Sharepoint 'Update Items' to work. The flow runs but there appears to be no updates.


Below are some screen caps of my current configuration.

Hi @mike_lydick ,

Could you please share more details of your flow's configuration?

What’s the expressions of getName and getSkill?

Checking the output of the Get items action, make sure you have get the item you want.

I have made a test on my side, the update item action works will.


Best Regards,

Thanks for assisting, @v-zhos-msft 


In my associated PowerApp I have 3 global variables

  • getName = set by User().FullName
  • getSkill = Set in combobox that pulls data from the Skill column in the Sharepoint list
  • getRating = PowerApp Rating control that is converted to text when we send to flow via onselect button

I see the variables get set in PowerApps. Cannot attach screen cap in this browser for some reason...


Thanks Again!
