Micorosft Flow Button - Multi select option becomes free-text

Recently, the Multi-select list of options for a Manual Flow Trigger input stopped prompting as a multi-select drop down and is now free-text input. This can be recreated with a simple Manual Flow Trigger with one Text Multi-Select option and a simple action. Upon executing a test run of the flow, the input is free text, not a multi-select.

Hi everyone,

 

When working in Flow this morning, it appears that the multi-select feature is working again.

 

Thanks MSFT for fixing.

Hi @ab-psi ,

I have made a test on my side, it has the same issue with you.

I suggest you use the 'Add a drop-down list of options '.

Hello @v-zhos-msft ,

 

For my particular use case the use of the multi-select list was intentional. Is the change in behavior for the multi-select list by-design? Is there updated user documentation where the change is noted I may have overlooked?

Hi @ab-psi ,

You can take a reference to this bolg:

https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/december-2018-updates/

There are some update of the button trigger.

You can raise you issue below this bolg.

Has anyone found another option or work around for this issue?
Having the same problem and cannot use drop down as suggested as I need multiple selections as an option.
