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.





Status: Completed

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.

@WebSolProv ,


I definetely feel your pain.  But, MS has their hands full just trying to keep working what they have already made.  I get their delay on some of these great ideas.
