Use MS Flow to create a new item in a sharepoint list using data from another sharepoint list

I'm at a loss :(. I have tried so many different ways to do this flow and can't get any of them to work.  Maybe someone where knows how to do this.

 

Use Case:

When List A's field called MSA In Process (Yes/No field) is set to Yes, I want MS Flow to create a new item in List B using the Company / Contact data in List A.  Company / Contact field in List A is populated from another list called Contacts, List A & B have this field to populate this information.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

You can try bool('true'), 'true' or just true. Sorry, on mobile so can't test just now.

Re: Use MS Flow to create a new item in a sharepoint list using data from another sharepoint list

This is a rather easy Flow, when an item is created or modified in LIST 1, compare the condition of the Yes/No column, and if it is Yes, create an item in LIST 2. Example:ListUpdatedCreateOnCondition.PNG

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.

Re: Use MS Flow to create a new item in a sharepoint list using data from another sharepoint list

Here is the Flow setup as your example.  I can't get it to get past the condition step.  The only way I've been able to get it to work at that step is using Switch instead of Condition.

Re: Use MS Flow to create a new item in a sharepoint list using data from another sharepoint list

What is the column type of the Yes/No (MSA In ...) column? If it is Yes/No column type, use the bool(true), if it is a single line of text, then just use Yes

It is the Yes/No column type and I've been trying to get the bool(true) to work and it doesn't.
