Flow Conditions Instantly Fail In Advanced Mode

Hello all,


I am trying to test against a field from Salesforce.


The following works as it should.



However, if I click Edit in adavanced mode and then, without clicking a single thing, update my flow and test it, the flow will fail everytime.




I am actually trying to check if it is empty but in order to do that I need to do that in advanced mode, but even just turning the conditional into advanced mode is enough to break the conditional.


The execution of template action 'Send_an_email' is skipped: dependant action 'Condition_2' completed with status 'Failed' and code 'ExpressionEvaluationFailed'.



Am I doing something wrong? Thanks :)…

Re: Flow Conditions Instantly Fail In Advanced Mode

Hi Lcunningham,


I created a flow to send an email when a new item was created in SharePoint list with a condition. When I configured Condition in normal mode, the flow worked well and email was sent. But when I configured Condition in advanced mode, “send email” action was skipped and “ExpressionEvaluationFailed” error message occurred. Here is a screenshot of the error message when I configured condition in advanced mode.

As your flow also worked well when you configured Condition in normal mode, I suggest you configure your flow in this way to let it works for you.


Best regards,

So it is impossible to use advanced mode?
