Apply to each greyed out flow for value of email

I am trying to create an automation to update the sharepoint list whenever an unsubscribe email is received in the inbox. However, the flow stops at "Apply to each 4". When I click on it, it's just a greyed-out box (see below).

According to another website, it means the data returned from the previous field is empty. The value I'm retrieving is from the "Get Emails".

I'm pretty sure the returned value is not empty though, because I've also used the same value for extracting the sender's address. As seen below, the value is returned correctly. It should mean that the 'value' of "Get emails" is not empty.

So I am confused on where the problem is, since the flow isn't returning any error message either. 

Any idea what's wrong? I'd appreciate any help, thanks 🙂

Hi @std7192 , Get Emails action allows us to filter all the emails containing Subject "Course Notifications". This will allows us to Iterate only on required items instead of all and probably will fix the timeout issue as well.

Please give it a try and let us know how it goes.

Hi @std7192 , I think orange icon represents that action is in progress. Can you please share screenshot once it is marked green? Also, I'm not sure why there are two Apply_to_each actions both for Get emails (v3). i.e. Apply_to_each 3 and Apply_to_each 4

Hi @Ajinder31, it actually stays orange for more than 10mins until the flow times out.

As for the Apply_to_each 3, it's for extracting the sender's email address, while Apply_to_each 4 is filtering the subject of the email and then updating the Sharepoint fields.

I tried this method to filter the email subject and it worked! Thank you 🙂
