Recording Form responses in Share Point - 'Created by' column incorrect

Hi,

 

I created a Form in Microsoft Teams and when myself or other users submit the Form, their responses are successfully sent to a Share Point List which I created (The SP List is within the same Team space as the Form). When another user submits the form, lets say John Smith, his name is listed correctly in the Forms 'Responses' tab. However, in the Share Point list the column 'Created By' gives my own name, I guess since im the creator of the list. I'm not sure if this is a SP issue or if it is something to do with the way I have set up my flow, which is given below;

The 2 Compose items simply just calculate a date. Within the Switch there is a 'Create Item' flow which sends the responses to the SP list. I dont think this is causing the problem as it just asks for the Site address, list name and field responses (but no 'Created By' field). Would anyone know what is going on? 

 

Thanks

@Marty3012:

 

The SharePoint "created by" column always shows the account used for the Flow action used to create the list item.  There is no way around this.

 

You might want to consider adding an additional person or group column to the SharePoint list and populating it with the Responders email from Dynamic Properties for the Forms action.  Please note that this concept will not work if the Form is set to anonymous responses.
