UI flow Inputs not working

Applies to: Power Automate

Symptoms


Input not getting inserted into the field that was selected.

Verifying issue


Solving steps


Make sure that the input field

  • Is not a read-only field(verified by checking if you can type in it normally).
  • There wasn’t an extra click between clicking on the field and the recorder.
  • The input field can be used normally by you while not recording & there are no input restrictions imposed by the application on it.

Best practices


  • Set focus to the input field by clicking on it before clicking on the Use Input option.
  • Clear the field in the recording before clicking on the Use Input option. One way to clear an input field during recording is to:
  1. Click on the input field.
  2. Press Ctrl-A key combination to select the text in the input field.
  3. Press the Backspace key to clear the input field.
