Collection fields as parameters to Flow

Hello,

 

Here is my problem :

- i have a collection with some fields

- i have a flow that create an item in sharepoint list, the metadatas are some of the fields from the collection

 

Problem : if i use these fields as parameters for flow, it considers them as Table and not strings... Any way to take them as strings ?

 

Thanks a lot

Hi,

From your description, you want to create a flow to create item in SharePoint list and make the fields from collection, refer to the following steps:

Create a workflow named “AddSharePointItem”:

Create an app, create an collection named “collection1” which have an field named “col1”.

Add an Button control in a screen, set the Onselect of the button to the following:

Take a look at the article about tables and records in PowerApps:
