Update list item after approval

Hi,

 

I have standard list approval flow (Start approval when a new item is added).  Trigger is when new item list is created. I want to update one list field after "approved". I can just find update item and there I need to update all list fields. Is there any possibility to update just one field from the list ?

In the SharePoint Update item action, you are only required to provide values for required columns. 

If you have required columns for which the values should not change, supply values to the column from the When an item is created trigger via Dynamic properties.  So, yes, you need to update the column even though the value won't change but you set it to the value that is already there.

Make sense?

@GeguzisP  you only need to update the one field, leave the rest empty (unless they are required columns) and they will keep their current value.

Yes, the questions is what to do with "required" values. But now I understad. Thanks for help.

Still open question. If field has default values, it is overwritten after update item to default. Is there any trick to solve that ?
