DO UNTIL excel cell updated

Hi, 

 

I am attempting to build a flow that will send an email once I have updated a spreadsheet however the DO UNTIL doesn't appear to be working as expected.

 

Basically we have a form that is filled out when someone new starts, this emails IT to create the account. We want it to then wait (Delay) until IT have updated a spreadsheet to say they have created the account and then send an email to other people to setup 3rd party apps. The 3rd party apps use the email address as the username so they cannot be setup until IT have created the account.

 

I have setup the below (it may have gotten a bit messy as I've been trying to troubleshoot the issue) can anyone tell me why this isn't working?

Any help would be very appreciated 🙂 

 

Thanks,

Is Do Until looping even though condition is already met?

If so, not sure if excel get a Row converts integers into strings, so that's why condition is never reached. Can you try to modify the expression as follows?

 

@equals(body('Get_a_row')?['IT Account Created'], '1')

 

Hope this helps

@PhillH 

Can you alaborate a bit more on your problem? Please click on "edit in advanced mode" option inside the Do Until action block and share the expression displayed. A screenshot with the error would be useful also

Let's see if this way we can help you solve the problem!

Hi @efialttes , thanks for getting back to me.

 

When I click edit in advanced mode I get the below:

@equals(body('Get_a_row')?['IT Account Created'], 1)

 

Basically, when a form response is submitted it is recorded in a spreadsheet. I am trying to get the flow to delay sending an email until I update a cell in that spreadsheet to "1". 

 

Thanks,

Phill

Thanks @efialttes that seems to have sorted it, can't believe I didn't notice that earlier! 

@PhillH I must confess it happened to me also some time ago, spent several days struggling with this issue

Glad to help
