Compare two columns in one sharepoint list

Hi all, 


I try to build a flow that sends emails automatically. 


At first it shall compare two columns (Name and Modified By) in one row from a sharepoint list. Where the condition is not true the person (Name column) should receive a reminder.


My problem here is that I'm not able to manage the comparison of these two columns in one row.


Can someone help me out here? Many thanks in advance.


Kind regards, Elena.

Hi @Anonymous, it seems like a similar flow to one I recently created. You just need to monitor your list and create a condition based on your two columns. If the condition is met, the email is sent. I've attached an image of the connectors used to give you an idea. You won't need the M365 Profile ones, can can replace the approval connector with a 'Send an email (v2)' connector. Please reach out if you have any questions.
