Do Until - Get Item #1 or #2 for condition

Maybe I'm over-thinking this. My Flow runs when an item is added to an SP list. It does some actions and then it does a Get Item (#1) from same SP list based on ID of that new item. I then use a Do Until to wait for 5 minutes, and then it does another SharePoint Get Item (#2). The Do Until checks to see what the value is on a column in that item.


Get #1 pulls the value once. Get #2 pulls the value every 5 minutes.


Question - for the Do Until condition, which action to I use to get the value from?

A) Get Item (#1) - but won't that be stagnant?

B) Get Item (#2) - but will that exist the first time the Do Until runs?

Re: Do Until - Get Item #1 or #2 for condition

Hi BC2me,


I am not sure with your scenario, could you please show me more details to help understand better?

Per my certain knowledge, a do-until loop allows you to repeat a step until a certain condition is met.

You said that “Do Until checks to see what the value is on a column in that item”, what does this mean? What value do you want to check?

Best regards,
