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.

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.

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.

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.
