I am currently fighting with the location property of a manually triggered flow. [I am quite new in Flow but not in programming.]
I basically create an image file on the app and UL it to a lib, currently modifying the property.title of the file to the address.
Accessing the location also lead to a failure.
In some other post here I read that a Danish guy had issues with the language so I also switched from German to English and re-created the flow again.
Now I have two sets for the properties.
In the parameters from the Trigger Step I can chose
“Set A” / “Set B” (I call it like this for further reference)
Latitude / location.coordinates.latitude
Longitude / location.coordinates.longitude
Full address / location.fullAddress
So I have each property twice! In no description I have seen that before. It started with changing the language and stays now.
Now about running:
If I create the flow using Set B it runs but the fields are always delivering empty content. It doesn’t matter if I call the flow from the browser, browser on Android or from the Android App directly.
Now, funny: I change the flow to “Set A”. If I run the flow from the Android App it will fail with the following error:
Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Update_file_properties' inputs at line '1' and column '1740': 'The template language expression 'triggerBody()['location']['fullAddress']' cannot be evaluated because property 'location' doesn't exist, available properties are 'user, key-button-timestamp, key-button-date, text, file'.
If I run the flow from the PC browser it goes thru and generates the results, having the address + coordinates.
If I run the flow from the Android browser I get also the result with data.
So my conclusion: the App messes up the location information in some way, on my system. Also strange, the App never asked for permission to access the location. I granted the permission from the menu but was never asked. Like the App never uses it.
I deinstalled the app, installed again, rebooted the phone. No difference.

Has somebody an advice how to proceed?
Thank you, Marcus
Continue the story:
I made a flow using the template where you can receive a push notification of your current location. This works fine.
I made a new flow from blank and put the location property in. The flow failed. Same error. When I now start the flow created from the template, it ALSO STOPPED WORKING! Also exception - no property location.
I was frustrated and went back home.
I tried the flows again. Both work now.
This is completely random behavior. How to fix that? It is all basic and out of the box cloud ware, it is not even possible to do misconfigurations....
I came here looking for a solution of the same issue.
My guess is that the full address is based on the geolocation and if the geolocation does not map to an identifiable address, it fails. This in turn causes the flow to fail (in my case to send an email) as it is absent one of the field results.
If this were the case could it be resolved with an expression to state that if blank or non identified leave blank?
Same issue here, had a flow which added a location to an excel for travel.
It has worked until 07/23/2020 7:06 PM (GMT+2), but failed at 07/24/2020 8:53 AM (GMT+2).
Created the template "Send me a push notification with my current location", nothing edited, just the plain template which fails with the following error:
Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Send_a_push_notification' inputs at line '1' and column '2226': 'The template language expression 'triggerBody()['location']['fullAddress']' cannot be evaluated because property 'fullAddress' doesn't exist, available properties are 'coordinates'. Please see https://aka.ms/logicexpressions for usage details.'.
When the Expression "fullAddress" is replaced with "countryOrRegion", the error stays the same, except the expression in it.
Trying to replace the expression to "coordinates" doesn't pop up anything when editing the flow.

iPhone language: English
same issue here when I am outdoors in a Park, it does not work any more:
triggerBody()['location']['fullAddress']' cannot be evaluated because property 'fullAddress' doesn't exist
Or did they change how to get the full Address? In the past, they transmitted the Address near-by
being at home it works fine, might it be, that location is retreived better, when connetced to Wifi?
