Sharepoint update item problem



I have small issue:


My process goes into two processes below:


Complete Planner task 1 -> Complete Planner task 2.1 -> update item

                                         -> Planner task 2.2 -> update item



I want to update my sharepoint item seperatly but i am affraid that one result will overwrite the second one and vice versa. 

I wouldn't have that problem if there was a solution to update only one column in item - not the whole list.

Is there any way to avoid this problem ?

When using the SharePoint Update Item action, only the columns for which you provide data are updated.  The exceptions are required columns where you always must provide values.  For required columns, do a Get Item first and then provide the existing values fro Get Item unless you intend to update those columns.  In addition, you should always provide a value for a choice column that has a default value - you can retrieve the existing value from Get Item.

Hi @Jacek88 ,


Could you share a screenshot of the current Flow configuration?

Could you provide more details about the specified column that needs to be updated?


If you only want to update the specified column, please consider using Rest API-Send HTTP request to SharePoint.

For more details on Update item, please refer to online doc:

i have two columns that need to be updated:

- Status of the flow (main flow left side of the screenshot)

- Yes/No to the question - depends on the completion of planner task (right side of the screenshot)
