SharePoint Get Items Filter

The filter value is ignored on my SharePoint Get Items action is currently being ignored. The first item in the list is returned everytime. According to this, this feature has not been implemented yet. Can you confirm this and do we have any updates regarding the timeline?

Hi SystemAccount,

 

Currently, Flow is being developed and improved, it seems that Filter function in Flow has not been implemented yet.

 

I had a SharePoint list which contained a Choice column and I created a flow “when an item is created, send email”. Every time a new item was created, no matter what formula I filled in the Filter Query box, I could receive an email. Then I considered using Condition instead of Filter function. I added Condition to my flow and configured Condition as this screenshot. Then when a new Item was created, I could only receive the email which Value met the Conditions.

As a workaround, I suggest you use Condition to filter the value you want before the Filter function in flow is implemented.

Mabel,

 

Thanks for the suggestion. This wont work in our flow because we need to filter a secondary query using GetItems instead of the initial action that has triggered the flow. It seems asking GetItems to return all items in the list and then filtering it with a condition throws other errors. 

 

Do you know of a feature timeline or a way to subscribe to feature releases?
