Copy action - time saver

It would be nice if I could copy an action into another. It'll make it easier and faster to complete the flow.

 

For example:

Depending on the day of the week, I need to update the [todayschedule] on SharePoint list.  Using the Switch/Case actions, on Monday case, add an [Update Item] action. Then copy this action for Tuesday - Friday cases and just change the [todayschedule] column without needing to select the list path, list name, ID, and other required contents each time.

 

Thanks.

This day has finally arrived when Flow supports copy paste.

Although it seems like a simple feature to build, there is a lot of complexity involved in supporting this feature. Especially when you think about handling references and action names across flows.

 

I appreciate all the feedback on this post, and know that you've played a very important role in shaping the future of Microsoft Flow.

Highly recommend reading through, if you are a fan of easter eggs 🙂

@ck25415 can confirm this! Im unable to copy any action into a switch case.

Level 8

@JoshMohr Here are my findings

 

1. I was able to copy actions which are grouped in scope from one switch case into a scope of another switch case but not outisde the scope of destination switch case.

2. If an action in a switch case is outside scope, I was able to copy it into a scope of a different switch case but not outside the scope of switch case.

3. I was able to copy a scope from one switch case into another scope of a different switch case(if there are too many actions under the scope your page may become unresponsive). I was not able to copy a scope directly into a different switch case.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.
