Possibility to make Output in "For a selected Item" Trigger optional



right now if I have an Output for the selected item trigger the Output is always mandatory by default.

It would be great if i could turn that of and make some as optional fields.

Love this. It would save me the time of training users to enter 'x' in blank fields, then writing rules to exclude them.

@JoshMohrJust an can actually accomplish this, just not thru the Flow editor. It would be a  lot easier thru the editor, but you can make output fields non-required with the following steps:


  • Export your Flow
  • Edit the 'Definition.json' in the export package to remove the output fields you don't need from the "required" property of the 'For a selected item' trigger 
  • Re-import the Flow package

This makes the fields optional when the end user triggers the Flow.


Just be aware that the 'For a selected item' trigger will not pass any fields that were left blank into the Flow. So, your Flow needs to check for the presence of a field in the trigger output before attempting to manipulate the field contents.

@StevenWade Thank you! Didn't know that. I will look into this. But of course it would be cool if you could edit this in the Trigger itself.
