Simple Basecamp -> Outlook custom flow not working.

Has anyone tried any Basecamp Flows?


While, yes, Basecamp will send notifications out, I have a need for a specific email notification when anyone adds a document with a title that starts with "REQ".


Should be simple... custom flow, permissions set for Basecamp and Office. Nothing happens. No error.flow.jpg

Ideas anyone?

Hi @pstratford - could you check one of more of the flow runs (under My Flows then select the info icon next to it) to see what's actually passing through each operation? It would help to narrow down the issue, perhaps the trigger isn't firing or "starts with" comparison isn't working. Any additional details from the runs would be helpful!

Sorry, I didn't make it clear in my original post.


The flow is definitely active - the "new document" check is running, the comparison isn't working, the Flow skips. A "contains" comparison works every time.


Just in case there was some form of systematic logic bug, flipped it back to "starts with", made a new document - nope. Also tried changing the search string to "REQUEST" - didn't make any difference - "starts with" didn't fire.



Interesting, can you see from the flow run what the actual title is when the condition is skipping? If you could send me an example of content in the run and the "advanced mode" of the condition it would be helpful. Thanks!
