Trigger flow from checkbox

Hi there, i am in the middle of creating an app for my company, the App adds an element to a list, and the flow then fills out a word template with these data. 

However, what i want to create now is a further condition in my flow that based on a checkboxs condition takes this document and sends it to the creator in a mail ´, however i am a stuck at figuring out how to do this. 
I can make it work without a condition however when i try to add if on the condition of whether the box is checked or not, it doesn't work, and I know that I am doing something wrong but can't figure out how to correct it, the flow gets stuck on the "when an item is created"(It's in Danish :))

Re: Trigger flow from checkbox

@TCH 

In flow, "When an item is created" statement passed only when your item has been created in SharePoint/PowerApps. whereas in your case you want to runs the flow when checkbox is checked and sent the items. In this case, there is no need to use this statement.

 

also, there are many ways to send email from powerapps itself.

 

simple is, you can use:- Office365.SendEmail() oncheck on this condition directly.
