Update item flow does not show hidden columns

Hi.  I have a very standard Flow to send out Leave Application by email.

The last step of the process updates the SP column "Application Status" (a choice column).

I have hidden the column so it does not appear in the user form. Unfortunetly, it does not appear in the Flow design either.

 

Flow should present ALL the fields to the designer even if they are hidden from the user form.

Can this please be fixed.

 

Mike

Re: Update item flow does not show hidden columns

Just figured this out.  Trap for new players.  Apparently "Choise" fields do not display in the Flow designer.

Converted to a "Single Line of Text" and everything works.

Re: Update item flow does not show hidden columns

Sorry - I could not see how to delete the original post.  The issue is a bigger one than described.

 

The problem is slightly different to the initial observation.  Actually MANY of my columns are not available in the Flow designer.  It seems that only 10 SharePoint columns are dislayed in the designer.  I have 18 columns.  So how can i update a column that I cannot see?

Re: Update item flow does not show hidden columns

Hi Mike,

 

we have a Content Type with many different fields and field types (i.e. choice, taxonomy). With PnP we set some fields to HIDDEN:TRUE.

If we do so, the MS Flow Action as of today DOES no longer offer these fields for "update property values". The are not listed. 

I must state that we have 21 own fields. But not the last ones are missing, but in between, all being choice.

But other choice fields are there, and value can be set in action.
