Choices Data Type Not Available in Business Process Flow Builder


 I created a new table in Power Apps under the Data section and added new columns with various data types. I have two columns with "Choices" data type which, allows me to select multiple values. I also created a form with all of the columns and published it. I then created a Model Driven App with the table (entity) that allows me to properly use the Choices type columns. Now I'm building a Business Process. I want to add the Choices data type columns to the first stage of the business process flow; however, they are not available for selection. When I add a Data Step to the stage and select the Data Field drop-down, I can see all of my table columns, except for the Choices data-types

How come I can't find "Choices" data type columns in this drop-down?

Hi @t_bara ,

Unfortunately Choices column type is not supported for BPF. There is this old thread in idea forum where this was requested but no date for implementation yet.

If you find this post helpful consider marking it as a solution to help others find it.
