Flow don't always update Sharepoint list


I have a Flow that gets triggered by a PowerApp. The first thing the Flow does is to write a status to a SharePoint list.

The problem is that sometimes, like 1/10 times, the Flow don't actually update the List!


In the Flow log "Update item" the right value seemed to have been written to the list and there's a green check mark.

But when I open the list, it's not updated.

I've tried refreshing everything ofc. I tried retrigger the Flow but the same error occur.

Anyone else have experienced this?

How can I make sure the Flow actually update the list?


I think it's pretty bad that the Flow don't detect this error and give a warning.

I've not had that happen and for me Flow updates the SharePoint list consistently. It sounds ike something might not be quite right in the PowerApp. But could you post screenshots of your Flow so we can see what the steps are?

Update item 7 didn't actually write to the Sharepoint List.

The first image is from the Run log and the last one from Edit.

Text in the red ring didn't get written (even though it's in the log when I expand 'Update item 7').

Re: Flow don't always update Sharepoint list

Could it be that the Sharepoint List is busy?

The PowerApp writes to the list right before the Flow is started. Maybe if the Flow is triggered at the same time it gets in a deadlock and move on?

I've added a delay after the PowerApp-trigger just to see if it helps.
