Flow not able to update properties in SharePoint when a user has opened the document

Dear MS Flow,


In office documents in SharePoint we are able to co-edit documents with multiple users, but when we want to update the document SharePoint properties/ metadata when a user has opened the document in Office online or in the Client the Flow gives the error that the document is locked for editing. 


We would like to see that Flow is able to update the SharePoint columns/ properties/ metadata when the document is opened by a user.


Kind Regards,

Same problem here. You get an 423 code in the Flow:

Level: Powered On

Same here. Is there otherwise any workaround possible?

Level: Power Up

Yes It should update the file properties and everyone should see it live on their open docs in browser and in app
