Simple flow only one condition... FLOW is coming back with a false negative

flowstatement_condition.JPGSharePoint List using this flow.JPG

 

Am i missing something here? It does not matter which condition i use they are all coming back negative regardless of the fact that i am copying the condition value verbatim.  ALL of my conditional flows have are routing to the "No" action. Right now i'm just sending simple emails but these are not working AT ALL. Someone PLEASE TELL ME what i'm doing wrong because this seems so simple and looks like it should work.

Re: Simple flow only one condition... FLOW is coming back with a false negative

Hi @ahern1987 

 

Can you please wrap 'Choice 2' in single quotes and try again? I think Flow is expecting a string, and having that word there without the quotes, Flow may be reading it differently, which may prompt the condition to keep defaulting to false.

It's always usefull to put the variable that you check on in a compose action or even send it along with the email. Then you can check what the variable was this it checked. 

 

I also think that it checks for an string so try the '

Re: Simple flow only one condition... FLOW is coming back with a false negative

I've tried both single quotes and double quotations and both of which return the same false negative. I've tried content type, content type name, as well as a custom dropdown field "Document type" and document type value. All of which continue to get false negatives i'm really not sure why the values are not being read.

Hi @ahern1987 

 

Can you please post a screenshot of the trigger output from the Flow run history to see how the data from this field is displayed?

Thanks.

Please see the attached screenshot. This indicates the trigger I'd like to see expanded to take a look at how the data in the "This is ridiculous" column looks like.trigger.png

@ahern1987 

I assume that the column you are referencing in the condition is a choice column.  In Dynamic properties, you should see 2 columns associated with your Choice column.  Something like this:

This is ridiculous

This is ridiculous Value

 

You need to select the "Value" entry in Dynamic properties associated with your choice column.  Can you verify that you have selected the "Value" entry?

@ahern1987 :

Did you check to see if you are referencing the "Value" column in Dynamic properties for the choice column?

Re: Simple flow only one condition... FLOW is coming back with a false negative

There is not an option to upload a file unfortunately. The same issue occurs when using a yes/no button. I've tried using single quotes, double quotes, 0 , 1, and true false. Ive tried it on a new flow. I think its the condition period anything that requires a text condition is not being read. Always comes back as false. Also i've noticed that i cannot "peek" code on these. I do not see an option at the bottom of the condition for advanced either.  I'm not sure what to do.

Hi @ahern1987 

 

I replied to your private message with my email address so you can send me the exported Flow, that way I can test it in my tenant once I get it.
