Flow condition not working

Hello All,

 

Hopefully I can get some help because this is driving me crazy.

 

I have a SharePoint list with a field called WFStatus

 

If WFStatus equals/contains 'Yes', do something.  It does not work.  My email gets sent but it doesn't execute the "If Yes" condition.

Anybody have any idea what I'm doing wrong?  Thanks!

Re: Flow condition not working

It looks like the culprit is the email.  When I deleted the Send Email that was before my condition blocked, the workflow went through the If Yes condition but then stopped at the other Send Email.  Any ideas why?

Hi @isogunro1 , 

 

The flow stop at the "Send an email with options" action because the flow is wait for the reply from the email receiver?

The flow would continue to run when the receiver reply to the email with option.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Re: Flow condition not working

Can you post a screenshot of a recent run?  This is usually because the values being checked are not what you expect or are case sensitive.  If you look at a previous run you can see what the value being tested actually was.

Re: Flow condition not working

That's what I meant.  Not sure then why your condition isn't working.  You might try switching it from Contains to Equals.  Since that's really what the value is.  In some cases Contains only works if the value being checked is longer than the value you are checking.  Other than that I'm not sure why it wouldn't work.

I'll try equal.  That's what I had before but it didn't work so I switched to equal.

Re: Flow condition not working

Do you know the difference between these two?  I created WFStatus but not WFStatus Value

Re: Flow condition not working

If WFStatus is a dropdown then its a complex object.  WFStatus Value is probably the selected value of the WFStatus object.
