Power Automate to change a Choice Column within a List depending on another cell entry

I have a form that is feeding into a List. I need to create a flow that automatically changes a choice field in my list to 'Critical' depending if someone enters a specific entry in another column within the List.

 

The exact scenario... Our production team fills out a form when they are in need of a work request. They have the option to choose the priority.   We want to ensure that any entry with the issue regarding a "JIT" comes in as 'Critical', therefore I want to create a flow to ensure that even if they wrongly choose "low" priority the flow will later change it.

 

I am new to all this so the more detailed the explanation the better.

Hello @SLBMetrology ,

if I understand correctly, you already have a flow that takes input from MS Forms form and creates an item in a list? 

I'd add a 'Condition' before the 'Create item' action. In the 'Condition' check if the other column contains 'JIT'. If yes, create the item using the data from the form, except the priority: set the priority always to 'Critical'. If no, create the item using the data from the form, including the priority, as you do now.
