Using calculated column as Condition

Hi.

 

I have a Sharepoint list with a calculated column that gives either Yes or No based on the rest of the list.

 

I am trying to make a Flow that sends an email when the Calculated Column (Test) says "Yes" but no matter what i write in conditions it always gives "false" status when testing.

 

I have tried:

@equals(triggerBody()?['Test'], 'Yes')

@equals(triggerBody()?['Test'], bool('true')

@equals(triggerBody()?['Test'], true)

 

and a lot of other things, but i cannot get i working. Is it not possible to use a Calculated Column as a condition i flows?

 

If you need more information, please ask.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

The value of a calculated column with Yes/No type should be 1/0,

You could take a try with expression below:

 

@equals(triggerBody()?['Test'], '1')

I have made a test to create thef flow as screenshot below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Can you set a varibale or a compose action to the calculated field value and use that in your condition?
