Post a choice of options as the Flow bot to a user: Comments variable no longer working

When I use the Flow action, 'Post a choice of options as the Flow bot to a user', the user sees both the list of options and the opportunity to leave a comment.

This is the Flow card appearance, showing both the options and the comments.

After the user hits 'Submit', I want to use the 'comments' variable in future actions in the Flow. As you can see, this dynamic variable is available on the list.

However, I get this error message when I run the Flow:

 

InvalidTemplate. Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Post_a_message_as_the_Flow_bot_to_a_user_2' inputs at line '1' and column '2643': 'The template language expression 'body('Post_a_choice_of_options_as_the_Flow_bot_to_a_user')['comments']' cannot be evaluated because property 'comments' doesn't exist, available properties are 'responseTime, responder, selectedOption'. Please see https://aka.ms/logicexpressions for usage details.'.

 

Previously, I was able to extract the comments and use them in Flow actions. Now I can't. From the error message, it looks like this feature has been removed.

 

Any workarounds for this?

Hi @Sarah_Bull 

 

The response json seems to no longed include the comments in this action

This still is a preview action

Looks like you would have to use graph api or use adaptive cards to create your own solution

Hi @Sarah_Bull ,

 

Thanks for feedback.

 

The issue could be reproduced by me, dynamic content Comments from Teams action Post a choice of options as the Flow bot to a user doesn’t work as expected.

 

I will help report this issue and back to you later once I got any updates.

Any update on this fix for this?

03/12/2019 still not working, any solution ?

A few month ago, this "Comment" value was not working. Today (13th Feb 2020), I tested my Power Automate which is integrated with this "Post a choice of options as the Flow bot to a user" and confirmed that it is working as expected.

 

Current Status

============

- "Post a choice of options as the Flow bot to a user" with "Comment" value is working as expected (13th Feb 2020)

- Seems the Product team released this officially. The (Preview) flag was also removed

 

Please test whether this is working as expected from your end. Thanks!

Sorry, the preview tag is still there. The function is working as expected
