Updating a calculated column in sharepoint



So I've seen posts in various places about something similar to this, but I just can't seem to get it working. I have a calculated column which uses NOW() in some form which obviously doesn't update dynamically, only when the item is edited. I saw that you can get around this by using HTTP request in flow ( to update the column, however I'm coming up against an error:


<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" Content="text/html; charset=us-ascii"></HEAD>
<BODY><h2>Bad Request - Invalid Hostname</h2>
<hr><p>HTTP Error 400. The request hostname is invalid.</p>

clientRequestId: 30a0798e-fa5c-4a00-96a8-1c2cda0f58b5


Here is what my flow looks like:




If anyone knows why this error is coming up, or if you know another method of achieving the same outcome, that would be most helpful!

Looks like you may have to provide entire URL in URI parameter that includes hostname too...
