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.

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

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!
