Condition Based on Number Calculated Field

Hi everyone,


I am trying to create a simple scheduled flow linked to a SharePoint list that will send an email for each item when the column 'Remaining Hours' is less than 10. But I keep getting an Action Failed error saying Invalid Template. Not sure if it makes a difference but the Remaining Hours is a calculated column. 


I have attatched images of the list, the column setup and the flow.


I hope you can help.


Many thanks,

If Days Until is a calculated column, it won't be updated unless the item has been edited.  In other words, if Dyas Until is calculated to be 10, it will stay at 10 until the item has been edited and saved.  If that is the case, you'll need to do the Dyas Until calculation using expressions in your Flow.

Hi @ScottShearer , so "days until expiry" is a calculated field that is updated daily - it is based on the expiry date - todays date (that is a column that is updated with a flow) so in essence the days will count down daily


The error indicates that one of the parameters is a string in your condition.  Try wrapping both sides in an int() expression and see if that does the trick.

Thank you so very much for this along with the screen shot, @ScottShearer !  This was similar enough to my scenario that I was able to use this and get it running properly.
