From twitter to Sharepoint List

Hello team,

 

I'm trying to do something that seems like it should be pretty simple, but I can't get it to work.


I want build a list in a sharepoint site (office 365) to capture tweets with a certain hashtag.  Fortunately there's a template for that: create item in sharepoint list. So starting with that template, I want to capture the user profile pic, and any image attached to the tweet, as well as the (text-only) username, text, timestamp, etc.

 

So I set up a list with fields for the elements I want to capture- including setting the column data type for the "image" field to "picture" as I've seen suggested in various places. 

 

When I go into Flow to create the input, I can select the Profile Image element from the data feed, but the List display doesn't offer the fields I designated for those elements!  Of course if I load sharepoint and manually paste in the URL for the profile image, the list displays as intended. 

 

Am I missing something about data types in the list configuration?  Or is there another way to configure list columns so that they are required to be available in Flow?

Hi STG,

 

Currently, Image column in SharePoint list has not been supported by Flow yet, so the list won’t provide a field for the Profile image element.


This feature request is actually on PGs’ backlog, but we don’t have a timeline on when it will be available.


Please keep an eye on this doc about Flow Release notes to get the latest releases on Flow:

Re: From twitter to Sharepoint List

Hi Mabel, thanks for the response.  Honestly it's a relief to know I'm not just missing something obvious :-)

 

Is there maybe a workaround?  Like, use flow for Twitter -> ExcelOnline to capture the links, then Flow from Excel->Sharepoint List and get the images to load that way?

Hi STG,

 

I haven’t seen such a workaround so far, I will keep an eye on this issue and post back to you if there is one.
