switch case evaluation of 'scope' action expression is not valid

Hi All,


I am creating flow to read list and based on provided filed i am trying to update status of list item.


Basically, i have column "Participants"(Choice with Multiple Selection allowed) in sharepoint list, when i am using switch case with it, i am getting error below. I have one more column called "Reason" (Choice without multiple selection), i am able to use switch case with it but not with multiple selection choice. 



ExpressionEvaluationFailed. The execution of template action 'Switch_2' failed: The result '' of the evaluation of 'scope' action expression '@triggerBody()?['Participants']?['Value']' is not valid. The result is expected to be a value of type 'String, Integer'.
is there any way to make multiple selection choice working with Microsoft Flow?

Hi samakw,


It is a known issue for SharePoint. Currently, both PowerApps and Microsoft Flow don’t support columns that support multiple values or selections.


Please check this doc for more details:


There are similar requests on both PowerApps ideas Forum and Flow Ideas Forum, please check the ideas at here, you could consider to vote the ideas at here:


I will help collect and report it on my side. Hope PGs will take it into consideration in the future releases.
