Very Few Dynamic Content Options Available When Building a Custom Flow.

When attempting to build a custom Flow, I have very few (5 total) Dynamic Content options for adding variables to my Flow.  When I build something from a template, I have far more options for defining Dynamic Content available to me.  What do I need to do to make these options available in a custom Flow?  Do I need to build them with code?  Do I need to import them somehow?  Do I need to upgrade to a better version?  Do I need to contact my IT department to see if they need to activate them on their end before they're available to me?

Your license does not impact what you see in Dynamic properties.  Generally speaking, Flow filters Dynamic properties based on where you are - it only presents dynamic properties that are appropriate for where you are trying to use them.  In addition, you'll frequently see "see more" next to the property heading.  Click on "see more" to see additional properties.

 

If you have a specific Flow with which you are having an issue, please post a screen shot here and we'll try to figure out why you aren't seeing what you think you should.

The answer to all of those questions is "No". What you will be able to select in the dynamic content will depend on what your trigger is and then what actions you choose. If you can post a screenshot of your flow here we can have a look and give more info.

Hi Rob—thanks for your input!  That certainly helps get me pointed in the right direction.  I made some adjustments and started with an alternate, similar trigger (with different dynamic content).

Hi Scott—your feedback is appreciated!  I did some trial-and-error testing and noticed that the dynamic content was different based on the trigger used, just as you indicated.  For me, it was simply a matter of using an alternate trigger.

 

Thanks again!
