How to re-run a previous step in my flow if a "Condition" defined using "Control" action is not met. i.e. "Condition" outputs as "false"


I have created a flow in MS Teams using which I can send an adaptive card to a teams user and wait for a response. After a user submits the response (in a input.text field in adaptive card), then the response value is added in to a table in an Excel file.

Now here, If user enters any non-alphabetical characters in input.text field and he submits, then I want to send him back a message "Please enter valid value". And then re-run the flow from the previous step. i.e. sending again the adaptive card that I sent earlier.

This flow should not proceed further to the next step, that is, updating the Excel file, until the value submitted by user in input.text field contains alphabetical characters.

How can I do that? I tried using "Do Until" but that doesn't help as I have to add a new adaptive card again in the Do Until section and then the outputs of this card are different than the card I created in previous step. So I cannot use this as I won't know which cards outputs I need to insert in Excel table.


Can anyone help me out?


Thanks in advance
