Help needed trying to create multiple conditions flow (Forms --> SharePoint List)

Hi,

 

I've been going around in circles trying to create a flow to help me populate a SharePoint list from output from a Microsoft Forms the way I want it to.

 

This is my scenario: I've created a Microsoft Form where users can fill out for inquiries on certain subjects they are having an issue with. The complexity lies in 2 parts: 1) Users can select multiple subjects in their response; and 2) For each subject, there is 1 point of contact. Within my SharePoint list, I have a column titled 'Assigned To' which I want populated with the point of contact based on the inquiry -- but I don't know how to populate if there is a response where a user has selected multiple subjects. With one it's quite easy and I could just do a Switch case, but when it's multiple subjects, I can't do that -- and doing a nested condition seems like it would get overly complex based on the potential combinations I would need to create to address.

 

Any thoughts on how I could solve for this?

Unfortunately, the logic for mutliple selections only really works if you use nested conditions. If that is more than you'd like to do, you may want to rethink our form design to help alleviate the need for nested conditions.
