Changing true to Yes, false to No in Flow

Hi, I have a flow (see image) which pulls data from SharePoint Online site. On the SharePoint site, the toggle value is "Yes" or "No" but somehow on Flow it converts those values to "true" and "false" when I copy the data to onto a Word doc.  Values below contains either "Yes" or "No":

Is there a way to convert the values back to "Yes" and "No" instead of true and false?

Also, can I change the font size and color of these values?

 

To give you more idea of how what I'm doing:

1) I created a PowerApps Form for users to enter data and toggle "Yes" or "No" questions

2) SharePoint Online stores these datas

3) Flow takes these datas and insert it into a Document Library on SharePoint 

4) On Document Library, there's a Word template that uses Quick Parts to display these data and that's where it shows "true" and "false" instead of Yes and No

 

Any help is much appreciated!

Hi @EdwardC,

 

this isn't really a flow issue. If you have a document library with yes/no fields and add these Quick Parts to a document you will see true false in your document. If you want Yes/No then you coudl go for a choice field with Yes and No instead.

Hi Pieter,

 

It is a Yes and No field. However, after being pushed from Flow to Word doc using quick parts, it ended up as true/false.

 

Anyways, I found a workaround this. Thanks tho.

I found a workaround too, so I, unlike others :P, should share (SharePoint list):

 

if(equals(triggerBody()?['InternalColumnName'],True),'Yes','No')

Hello,

 

Where would this formula go?

For example, it can go into an email body to display Yes or No instead of True or False. Or it can go to HTML file, which you can then convert to PDF and so on.

Hi @GrischkePro 

 

I used your solution but flow doesnt show the column, can you see what i did wrong?

The name of the internal yes/no checkbox is 'testcolumn'

 

@{triggerBody()?['testcolumn']}
if(equals{(triggerBody()?['testcolumn']},True),'Yes','No')
if(equals@(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],True),'Yes','No')
if@(equals@(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],True),'Yes','No')
if(@equals@(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],True),'Yes','No')

Only the first one works but in the mail i see true/false, i need to show Yes/No.

Regards

Hi @Pieter_Veenstra ,

 

I know your answer was a couple of years ago. I had the same issue and your suggestion solved the problem! Thank you so much!
