Send email when task is not completed

I'm trying to create a Flow where an email goes out once per day when a task is not marked 'Completed'. Emails go out properly every day, but the email goes out even if the task is marked completed. 

 

This seems like such a simple condition but it's not working

Hi @ mhulse,

 

Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

Could you please share more details about your sharepoint list?

 

Do you want to check if the "Task Status" is equal to Completed? and If the "Task Status" is equal to Completed, do nothing, if the "Task Status" is not equal to Completed,send the email?

 

I afraid that there is something wrong in your Condition.

 

I have made a test on my side,please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The flow will run successfully as below:

 

If the item's "Task Status" is equal to Completed,the flow would do nothing as below:

If the item's "Task Status" is not equal to Completed,the flow would send the email as below:

Try Dynamic Condition >> Expression tab to add string literal 'Completed'
