Updating Managed Metadata Column value in Flow via PowerApps

I am running a Flow from a button in PowerApps - it is working fine - however I cannot seem to get all the values from a DataCard that has multiple items saved in it. I have tried using SelectedItems but this just gives me an error. If I use Selected I just get the last value saved into the Column. The DataCard is connected to a multi select managed metadata column in a SharePoint list. The Flow is updating a list item.

Re: Updating Managed Metadata Column value in Flow via PowerApps

Hi @Anonymous 

 

The error you are getting when trying to select multiple items is because of the limitation that you can only pass strings/numbers as an argument to flows. Here Selected.Value returns a string value while SelectedItems is itself an array.
 
As a workaround, what you can do is, pass a string of all the values separated by dash from the PowerApps and then split this into an array in the flow.
 
Can you try to pass Concat(DataCardValue12.SelectedItems,Value,"-") in place of DataCardValue12.Selected.Value as parameter to flow?
 
Hope this Helps!
