Re: update an Specific item from one SharePoint list to another SharePoint list

Hi @Anonymous,

 

There should be a common value between the two lists. For example, Service tag.

 

Then when an item is created in List2, get items from List1. Then use a Condition to check if they have the same Service tag, if yes, update item using the corresponding dynamic content.

 

Please have a try with it.

Re: update an Specific item from one SharePoint list to another SharePoint list

Can you provide a little additional information please?

 

I understand you to say this:

1) You have a list with information about a computer including computer name.

2) You have a second list where one of the fields is computer name

3) When an item is saved in the second list, you want to lookup the computer name in the first list.  Once you find it, you want to select olther columns in the first list and update the item in the second list.

 

Am I correct?

 

Please post here and I will create an example.

Re: update an Specific item from one SharePoint list to another SharePoint list

I have a similar requirement, but in my case i would like to see the records that don't match in the two SharePoint (SP) list. I have two SP lists. 1 with students email (unique key) and another with student response (also has email as a unique key). What i would like to have is, run a flow to compare the two SP list and send a reminder to students who haven't completed the survey.
Should I created a 3rd list to store non-matching records?
