Can you use expressions for switch?

Hi, 

 

I have been setting up email reminders for actions approaching/going over their due dates.

 

In a condition I can use "is equal to" and then my expression for the date.

condition and expression workscondition and expression works

But in a switch statement it doesn't bring up the wizard to set the Equals text box to be an expression

switch not prompting expressionswitch not prompting expression

I expected to be able to use content like this

expected expression wizardexpected expression wizard

Is this by design and I should just use multiple conditions?

Re: Can you use expressions for switch?

Hi @Zango 

 

In a switch case action you cannot define a variable or use the dynamic content selector because by default the value of every case in a switch case scneario needs to be static. 

 

You could refer to this blog for more ideas on using the switch case feature and the like ones.

Hope this Helps!
