Switch Case - If a user selects the 'Other' option in Microsoft Forms

Hi,

 

My issue is as follows. I have a Microsoft Form and it has a Choice question where the user has an option to select 'Other' rather than the specified choices;

In my flow I want to create a Switch Case so that if a user selects 'Other' then a separate group of actions will be used for that option. The important thing here is that I dont want to pick up the actual value entered in the 'Other' option, I just want the Flow to pick up the fact this 'Other' option has been selected. In the Switch action it only allows you to compare the actual value that is entered;

Cant think how to do this. Any help appreaciated.

Thanks

Hi @Marty3012 

you would use the switch case like

the 3 column you use for other because the person selected is not john or Bill so it would go to the default 

 

 

with kind regards

My mistake. I should have mentioned in original post that for the actual form there will be many options in the Choice question, potentially over 20 plus the 'Other' option. Therefore I was hoping not to have to create many switch statements. I thought about an If Condition, but only thing is I will have to add more choices to the question over time, so I dont want to keep going into the if condition and add more options.

Thanks

Thanks

hi @Marty3012 

 

so if i understand it there will be 20+ choices ? 

what is the next step or will every person have different steps ? 

with kind regards

Yes, correct. There will be a drop down question with 20+ options with an option to add a custom value in the 'Other' option. The 20 + options will have their own set of actions in one column of the switch and whatever value is entered in 'Other' will have its own set of actions in another column of the same switch. thanks

Here is an image to show what I require;
