Scenario - Users on a form select a drop down value which I want to set back to blank after every form save


I've seen a few other post how to do it on-prem but those solution don't working in Office 365.

- A blank variable can't be used (error message below)

     Some parameters failed the validation check.

      - [InputMetaDataXml] : The 'Fields to update' is invalid. Input string was not in a correct format.

- The update item column property can't be left blank

- A variable cant be set to a blank value


If left blank in Update List Item you get the action error


My only workaround is to use a custom "Please select" item and set a validation against that for this scenario, but it wouldn't work in others.
