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

Re: Micorosft Flow Button - Multi select option becomes free-text

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?

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.
