Trigger Conditions to start a flow when a 'Person or Group' field CONTAINS a name

Hello,

 

I want to trigger my flow using Trigger Conditions. I want the flow to only run when my custom Person column is filled out and contains information.

 

The flow is looking at a SharePoint list library. My custom column is a "Person or Group" column named: "AssignedTo"

 

When items are created in this list, the Assigned To column is <blank>. After the Assigned To column is filled out and saved, I want the flow to run.

 

I have tried many things, looking at length(), IsBlank(), equals(). But have yet to find anything that works. 

 

Remember I want to use the built in Trigger Conditions.

 

Thanks for any help!

I added the @not in the beginning. This expression worked for what I need:
@not(empty(triggerBody()?['AssignedTo'])) 

Thanks for the assist @PrasadAthalye

Right. So that expression works if I want the Flow to be trigger when the people picker is empty. But I want to trigger the flow when the people picker is not empty. The people picker must be filled in before flow is triggered.

I added the @not in the beginning. This expression worked for what I need:
@not(empty(triggerBody()?['AssignedTo'])) 

Thanks for the assist @PrasadAthalye
