As the final step in many processes - especially with in place records - it would be really useful to be able to declare a document as a record in an action.
While you're at it: the actions "Undeclare a record" and "Check if a item is a record" could be great too...
A possible workaround might be a CSOM-powered Azure Function invoked via HTTP. I'm finding that every non-trivial Flow I do has some sort of unsupported action requirement, and Functions work really well for this.
not being able to declare a record via workflow (given that SPF workflows had been disabled for Groups/Teams) this seems to be a must.We implemented numerous Records Management systems, I am sure ERM is here to stay. Is there an alternative way (that does not require introducing additional infrastructure/technical debt - like Azure Functions) that this can be resolved or should we ask our client community (ie 5k votes that represent 1% of future user base, to click that Vote button)?We wish a happy implementation to the Engineering team!
All the best,

Agreed with DLaskewitz - declare, undeclare, and record status would all be incredibly helpful on the administrative level as well as for reporting/auditing of records. #missingbasiccapabilities
Also agreed with DLaskewitz. This feels like basic functionality that should be available
I could solve the problem creating a separate library with Automatic Declaration (under Record declaration settings) and copying there the documents, so they are automatically set as record. After one and a half year of waiting, I don't think MS is really caring about this issue.
+1. We have multiple flows and we need it badly. This is the 3rd year running since 2017, someone should pick it and add now.
How hard can it be, MS?
Declare/Undeclare a record from a flow - Such a simple requirement. My directors are ready to trash SharePoint and return to our old app.
