Updating Single Field in the SharePoint List using flow



I am using SharePoint Update Item and want to update single field in the list. I am setting value for the mandatory field and the single field that I want to update leaving other fields untouched.


However, when the flow executes it clears all the other fields in the list for which I have not provided the value.


Quick looking at a code view I noticed that it's passing empty values for the other fields, can I update the code view in flow to fix the issue ? Is there other fix available for this ?

Have you tested this?

Great solution if it works!

Hi Justin, to whom are you commenting?? I've tested it and successfully used it several times now. So, if you're running into an issue, please elaborate on it...

This is a great tip! One note I would add is you will still have to update the "Required" fields, but you can do this by using data from a Get Item. Still saves a ton of time when you have a list with tons of fields.
