'Continue' stetement in Flow loops

Hi all

Does Flow have something similar to the 'Continue' statement in other programming languages? I mean, any trick that helps to "jump over" one iteration in the loop.

Thank you in advance!

Thank you, @v-yamao-msft , for your fast confirmation!

 

In the meanwhile, I am applying a very simple alternative, that is to implement an if-then-else / switch inside the loop, and leave empty the branch where the "skip one iteration" shall apply.

Hi efialttes,

 

I am afraid that currently Flow doesn’t have a statement can be used to skip one iteration in a loop.


Please consider to submit an idea at Flow ideas Forum, I will help collect and report it on my side.

I've created this an idea. Continue Statement for the Apply to each and Do un... - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

The accepted solution neglects the fact that this may cause complexity issues with the limit of 8 nested conditions.

Yea, 5 years after and we still don't have this core functionality, thanks Microsoft 🙂

This needs to be addressed, I am hitting nested levels as well because I cannot skip through if condition is not met.
