I use Get items action in my flow with an OData filter query: Email eq 'Choice1Email' or Email eq 'Choice2Email' or Email eq 'Choice3Email'. Email ,Choice1Email,Choice2Email and Choice3Email are single line text fields in SPO, ChoiceEmail fields are from trigger item. I am trying to get the items in the particular order mentioned in the query and use it in apply to each action in the same order(sometimes the Choice1Email or Choice2Email or Choice3Emaill can be empty).
By defualt Get items retrives items in the ascending order of created field, Also I could sort by modified and other criteria but could not get this particular order.
Is there any other way than using 3 get items action and creating a collection out of it and feeding it to Apply to each action, Any suggestions?
Thanks for your quick reply.
You can sort orderby Choice1Email asc, Choice2Email asc, Choice3Email asc. I might be missing something here?
@abm Thanks, I went through it, in the post OP was trying to sort using multiple columns from the same list where items are being retrived from but I am trying to sort using a value that I gave in the filter query which is from a different list.
Not sure if I am missing something here.
Hi @ck25415 ,
Could you please explain more details about your requirement?
What is the difference between your scenes and the post OP? Please explain more details about the difference for the filter query which is from a different list that you mentioned.

In the below query the get items retrives 0-3 items(not more than that) and I want the retrived items in the order of query.
1. Email that matches Choice1email
2. Email that matches Choice2email
3. Email that matches Choice3email
If I leave the order by query empty, I get the items in the created ascending order.
If I have the order by query as Choice1email asc, Choice2email asc, Choice3email asc I get an invalid expression error. Choice1email, Choice2email, Choice3email are values from the trigger item.
