Looking to add the option to use flow to check if an item in a SharePoint list is existing or not, i.e. If item = NULL.
Trying to set a condition that is true if RETURN DATE is blank so that if the return date field is blank, a reminder email is sent
Am I correct in thinking this will work?
RETURN DATE is equal to ""
Is "" the correct syntax for blank/empty string?
I had exact same issue. I was able to work around using the coalesce function listed in Azure's Logic Apps documentation.
Instead of checking for null, I checked if the date was greater than a date far in the past. I wrapped the basic condition generated automatically by flow inside the coalesce function (you have to switch to advanced mode). The coalesce function will not return a null. If your date field is null it returns a "fallback" value that you set in the function. Just set the fallback date less than the date in your condition. In the example below I check to see if my ReceiveDate field is greater than 1/1/1991. If yes then I send an email:
