Power Automate and SharePoint list look up fields

Ok, this one should be simple.

I have contacts list, with people's names and email address, and a master list.  All I want to do is create a flow that sends an email when a condition is met.


When I build my flow, and search through my dynamic content none of my lookup fields are listed, in the example below - program name.


The view is not filtered in any way, the lookup fields just aren't appearing.  Any thoughts?

Fixed it on my own, needed to have the primary lookup field be the ID of contact list.

I believe you would need 1 or 2 more actions in between the 2 you have. "Get changes for an item or a file (properties only)" and then a "Condition" action to drag or create the email action under the condition qualifier yes or no.


In my case I only want the Get changes once for a specific column so combined using a dynamic within the expression tab in the "Since" field...ex. 

Hope that gets you through this challenge so you can move it forward. I'm no expert so can't offer too much more beyond what I've done to make it work for my situation. And you are already ahead of me because I can't get the images to post for examples:)
