Saving attachment from email to OneDrive for Business, flow not executing



I've just created my first Flow and it seemed to be working initially but now it skips the execution every time.MSFlow.JPG  


For new email with attachments, depending on the subject of the email the flow should save the attachments to one of 3 folders.


Can someone have a look at this and see if I'm missing something?

Re: Saving attachment from email to OneDrive for Business, flow not executing

Hi @jpilk,


By saying skip running, do you mean the conditions are always not met?

Would you please specially show the condition you used here?

I am not able to figure out the Value part (Input box after the contains) due to the image , there may be some string or character that causing the flow to skip the condition,  

Please share the string you configured here, I will then make a test from my side.

Re: Saving attachment from email to OneDrive for Business, flow not executing

Hi Michael, 


Yes, it behaves as though the conditions aren't being met.  The first condition is that I'm looking for a subject that contains the phrase "Stocking Analysis - Invt - MPSP Q8 Supply".  


What's truly strange is that I added a second flow with no conditions - just save all attachments coming into my inbox to OneDrive for Business.  And then suddenly the other flow with the conditions started to work.  ???  That one really makes me scratch my head.  


How quickly should the flow execute?  Maybe the original flow with the conditions was working but there was a delay to when the files were actually delivered?
