SharePoint Choice List Missing

I wanted to create a flow that would change the "Status" field from 'Active' to 'Filed' once the user puts in an Issue End Date (because the status field is not on the power app form). However, the Status Field (which is a choice list with 2 choices: Active and Filed) was not available in the Update Item fields in the flow.


Is that intentional? I knew we couldn't use managed meta-data or people fields, but didn't hear anything about choice fields not being available for update.


Thank you in advance,

Yes you can see the fields available within a condition in this screenshot.  Can you try a different list to see if you have the same issue?flowSharepointNewItem2.PNG

Looks like it's now working, but only when I flip from one list to another, and then back.

@KeremY is there any update on this issue?

I'm trying to create a flow that creates a list item in one list based off of the content submitted in a different list;

I'm still not seeing the option to include content from Choice, People or Group, or Calculated columns populating in the Flow.

Any update?

I hope the feature will allow the users to freely update the "Choice" column in the Custom List by using Flow. Below the reference, a workaround is described that the user can be used a simple string field instead.

- Title: Release notes
- URL:
- Description:Flows can't write to Lookup, Choice, People and Groups, and Taxonomy fields in SharePoint lists. We recommend using a simple string field until this is corrected.

By the way, we assume that this workaround has a possibility for the inconsistency of data. To avoid this matter, I hope the feature will be improved enables updating to the "Choice" column in the Custom List via Flow in the near future.

Any update on when this idea will be completed?

An update would be appreciated. I believe May was mentioned as being a possibility, but now it is almost into July.


Thank you.

Hi folks, this is actively in development. We are working on ironing out some issues before rollling this out. 

Not applicable

Should absolutely be enabled for choice columns that allow custom entries at a minimum.

Not applicable

Is it possible to add a "Current" option when using the Get Item(s)/list, Update Item/List Delete Item, Create Item etc.


Example Update Item requires


  1. Site Address
  2. List Name
  3. ID



Can we get a tickbox says "Use Current" that would automatically use the current item or list if required?
