If it is a SharePoint list, you need to create a list, and a custom view that has all of the desired columns, including the Complete column that has the Yes/No condition. The condition sould have the Complete column, is equal to Yes

The below screenshot is the basic layout needed for the flow, you must make sure that your default list view has the Complete column visible, or you manually set the column view in the Limit columns by view entry in the When an item is created or modified:CompleteCondition.PNGIf this reply has answered your question or solved your issue, please mark this question as answered.

If the email is in your Yes step and it isn't sending an email, that means that the Condition step isn't passing, which moves the Flow the the No step. Just because a condition fails, and it goes to the No step doesn't mean that the Flow fails - it is running just fine, the condition is what is failing. The conditon's job is literally just to be a pass/no-pass check.

I suggest taking some time to review the logic within your condition step. If you have issues, A Visual Explanation of Flow Logical Expressions is a great resource, as are the Add a condition to a flow, and Apply to Each documentation. 

Again, if the column isn't visible in the default view - the Flow and condition can't see the column. If it doesn't see the column, it doesn't fail the Flow, so this is an often overlooked step by many.

If you can't figure it out, feel free to post an expanded screenshot (showing the details within your steps and condition), so we can assist further.
