Update profile without overwriting existing content

I started using Power Automate recently and tried to use a template for updating someone's office365 profile. 
The template is working like expected, but always overwrites the data that is stored in the user's profile.
Is it possible (and how can I manage that) to add the data in the fields like "projects", "schools" and "interests"?
Like to hear from you 🙂

Hi @mharst,


You can initialise a variable and set it to true once updating someone's office365 profile is completed.

Check if the variable is not true , every time you run the flow.

You can store the variable data in your source sheet.


hope so this helps

I undestand what you are saying, but because I'm new to the platform I need some more directions.
How can I add the variable in the flow?

Hi @mharst,


hope so this YouTube video helps.
