condition not working

i have a field in my SP list that is single line of text. The Power Apps form creates the row with either true or false in this field.  I have an automate flow where the first condition checks to see if the field is equal to true and then it should follow the yes path. However, it's following the no path even though the field value is true. How can I resolve?

 

thanks.

Re: condition not working

Hello @ahhollan 

 

What is the data type of this field? Is it boolean?

 

Add a Compose action before your Condition to evaluate the 2 values that are being passed into the Condition. This is to check what the 2 values are.

Mine is just an example:

 

What you need to do is have your compose and put the value from your sharepoint in there. (SP list that is single line of text -- The value that you are checking if true or false)

 

Also what are you doing on the right side of your condition

 

Please share a screenshot of your flow / condition

Re: condition not working

Hi @ahhollan ,

 

Could you please share the run history of the flow with the out put of the Compose?

What is the type of the confRmRequest column?

If the column is a choice type column, you should choose the confRmRequest Value dynamic content from the trigger in the Condition.

 

Best Regards,

Alice
