Update File Properties on Sharepoint Not Populating

Hello,

 

I am currently trying to make an update a file property using power automate but, not all of the properties are appearing when i use that module. I have tried going into advanced options and have tried multiple views but the property fields still will not show up. The two properties that do show up are not even columns in the properties so i am not sure where they are coming from. Any ideas as to what is going on?

Hi @Andrew0228 

 

You mean a document library correct? A document library is just another form of a list, so it should work.

 

I need more information to be able to help you.

 

Can you provide me with more details?

Hi @Andrew0228 

 

Are you using a view that limits the columns displayed?

Hi @manuelstgomes 

 

Even if i select the "Use all columns (Do not limit)" they still do not show up. The view i was using does limit the columns displayed.

 

Thanks

Hi @Andrew0228 

 

Oh wait I got it. You're using "Update FILE properties" but you want to update a list item correct? That's only used for files and not list items.

 

You should use the "Update Item". when you insert the Library it will show you the full list of items contained in that list.

Hi @manuelstgomes 

 

That doesn't work either, i used update file properties because I am updating the columns in a file directory not in a list. When i used the Update Items module none of the columns were showing up. If there is anything i can do to clarify this further i can do that. Thanks
