Email Fails With Multiple Conditions in Flow

Hello All!

 

I'm new to Power Automate/Flow and failing miserably!

 

I'm building a flow that sends an email to a specific user when an item in a document library is modified. An email should be sent when multiple conditions for that item are completed. The email fails with the following error, "ActionBranchingConditionNotSatisfied. The execution of template action 'Send_an_email_(V2)' skipped: the branching condition for this action is not satisfied." I created the same workflow in SharePoint Designer 2013 and it works perfectly. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I cannot duplicate it in Flow/Power Automate.

 

Thank you for your assistance, suggestions, etc.!

PVLove

Re: Email Fails With Multiple Conditions in Flow

Hi @PVLove 

 

Most likely your issue must be related to condition. I can see there are three conditions to satisfy for sending an email. What are the data types for these field names? If it's a string data type use single quotes around to compare the value?

 

Thanks

Re: Email Fails With Multiple Conditions in Flow

Good Morning @abm,

Thank you for replying. The Conditions on the flow are below.

Employee > is equal to > Employee Email;
Review Date > is equal to > Review Date Value;
Receipt Type > is equal to > Receipt Type Value

 

The process for the flow that I'm trying to set is as follows:
The Admin uploads a file to a document library; adds data to the Employee, Review Date & Receipt Type columns, which should trigger an email to the Employee for the selected file. Does that make sense? Is that the information you need/requested?

 

Thank you,
PVLove

Re: Email Fails With Multiple Conditions in Flow

Like I mentioned earlier you need to check the type (string, numeric, boolean, etc) of your field you are comparing.

Re: Email Fails With Multiple Conditions in Flow

I'm not sure what you are asking, but here goes.

 

triggerBody()?['Employee'] is equal to body('Get_file_properties)?['Employee']?['Email']

triggerBody()?['Review_x0020_Due_x0020_Date'] is equal to body('Get_file_properties)?['Review_x0020_Due_x0020_Date']

triggerBody()?['Receipt_x0020_Type'] is equal to to body('Get_file_properties)?['Receipt_x0020_Type']?['Value']

Re: Email Fails With Multiple Conditions in Flow

Hello @PVLove

What @abm is asking for is the type of value from the SharePoint list.

If you go to SharePoint in that list that you are using. You can check which each column is expecting. For example:

In a name field, when filling out a new item may only allow characters(string) as a value.

Age column might be formatted as integer, so only whole numbers are allowed.
