SharePoint - Update item action

2222.jpgIn my infopath/SharePoint form, I have three yes/no fields. When, for example, the facebook checkbox = True (Yes), I want to update a status field within my SP List using the Update Item action. However, by default, the Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter checkbox fields are all defaulted to No. 



If my testing was correct, when I didnt change the facebook default field to Yes, the flow did not update the facebook status item. Also, I will need to create(assuming) two more similar additional flow that will send email when Instagram or Twitter checkboxes are checked. Each social media selection must contact a different set of people.

Hi Lp939,


The default value of the Yes/No column in SharePoint list depends on what you have set for it. When there is no update for the value, it will stay with the default value.


For your scenario, please try to use the Single Line of text column, then when there is a change on it, it will be updated, while if there is no change on it, it will be blank.


Best regards,
