Microsoft Flow to copy SharePoint list Items - Missing Dynamic Content

I created a List from which I want to copy some items to another list. I used the "when an item is created" selected my site/list to trigger my Flow but when I go to "Get Items" the dynamic content does not populate. 😞 I tried it with other lists in the same site and it works for the other lists. What could be wrong? I researched and found that sometimes when there are "choice" columns that are marked as required the dynamic content does not show. I tried making it not required but it did not help. I also checked my connections and they are good. Any ideas what else could be happening? I am working on a deadline and have only one week left to build something for my company and keep hitting roadblocks so I appreciate any help/insights/suggestions/ideas... 

Thank you!

Hi @Anonymous,


Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

From your description, what you mean is that when you want to populate the field of another list, there is no optional Dynamic content.

Or you want to populate Dynamic content in the Get items action, but it is not feasible. Can you provide more explanation?

If it's convenient, could you provide the configuration of the two SharePoint lists you want to operate on, such as the field type and so on?


Before that, you could consider the reasons for the issue from the following aspects.

   1. Have you clicked "See more" in the upper right corner of Dynamic content?  This will allow you to see more of the optional Dynamic content for the fold.

   2. Check that the field type of the field you want to populate is the same as the field type of the Dynamic content you want to fill. If it is inconsistent, Dynamic content will not be displayed.

   3. Since you are copying the item to another list, you may use Apply_to_each. Maybe you could try to use items('Apply_to_each')?['conlumn'] to get the value of the column you want, then populate it in the field.


It would be helpful if you could post more details and we would provide a proper workaround for you.
