Update status based on a valid "phone number" field entry

Hello community,


I would like to update the status of the flow from Submitted to In Progress, when a column/field is updated. The column field to be modified is a phone number field. By default it is text blank field.


How can I ensure the flow is updated only when the phone number field is changed from nothing to a valid phone number "999-999-9999".


In Powerapps forms, I've already included a validation that ensures the form is only submitted when the phone number field is in the correct format: 999-999-9999.


I am stuck on not knowing how to clearly specify the condition that looks at the change in the deskphone_number field.

hi @mthiru  you can do someting like this.




So first I get the lenght of you colum response so, if the lenght in 10 in Ecuador that means a valid number, and the other condition is if the same value contains 099 so it means is a valid number.


Hope you this helps you.
