MS Forms Yes/No choice value to SharePoint list

Hello,

 

I have built a flow that takes the values from MS Forms and puts them into a SharePoint list.

 

Whilst I've mapped across all the fields to columns, I am encountering this error:

 

OpenApiOperationParameterTypeConversionFailed. The 'inputs.parameters' of workflow operation 'Create_item' of type 'OpenApiConnection' is not valid. Error details: Input parameter 'item/S1Q3' is required to be of type 'Boolean'. The runtime value '"No"' to be converted doesn't have the expected format 'Boolean'.

 

My flow steps:

The JSON is just getting the displayName, jobTitle, directorate and employeeId values from the user profile and formatting these for SharePoint list.

It's on the S1Q1 Value that it is falling over on. Whilst Yes or No is selected, this is not going to the SharePoint list even though I have a column with the same choice values.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Use an IF() statement to cast the "Yes" value from the form to true otherwise false.  Like this

if(equals(outputs('Get_response_details')?['body/GUID from form question'],'Yes'),true,false)

@Pstork1 will the SP list column need to have its values changed from yes to true and no to false likewise or will they just update as is?

Replace the dynamic content you are using in the create Item action.  That will provide the SharePoint list with the right data type.  When displayed inside SharePoint it will show as a Yes/No value.  But it is stored as a boolean true/false.  You don't need to change the list, just change the way you are submitting the value.

Hi @Pstork1 

 

The data is now coming through but with True/False values rather than yes:

I thought it was a Yes/No column in SharePoint, not a Choice column.  Use the same code but change the true to 'Yes' and the false to 'No'

@Pstork1 I've changed it back to a Yes/No column as that seems to work better. 

 

I noticed on the columns where "Yes" is chosen, this shows a check in the list however on the "No" value, nothing is shown. I was expecting to see a No value with an X mark.
