Duplicating an Item in Series

I would love some input on the best approach for creating items in SharePoint based on a previous entered item from the same list.  Such as ...I have a service ticket to be done each day.  The same technician will go to the same location for 4 days, so I need to create the first ticket entered 3 more times.  I have done the following:

1.  Create the trigger

2.  Get the item from SharePoint

3.  Set the switch ( in accordance to the value selected for re-creation).  The attached picture shows most of the flow.  Each item has an apply to each

My issue is ;  If the value is set to 3 , the switch should go to 3 and stop.  However, the PowerApps fails and asks for the values for Switch 4,  then when entered Switch 4 fails and ask for Switch 5 values, etc.

 

But the Flow manually triggered runs.

 

I have also tried using yes/no conditions.  Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Hi @TerrificTerri ,

 

Thanks for updating.

 

The value you give from app is of type Text, you need to convert it to integer then use it in the Switch condition.

 

I have created the flow likes below for your reference.

 

After the Button trigger, add Compose, select Ask in PowerApps for its Inputs.

 

Add Compose 2 with the following code:

int(outputs('Compose'))

 

Then the Switch on Compose 2 Output, set Case equals 1, Case 2 equals 2, Case 3 equals 3.

 

And add corresponding actions under each case.

Hi @TerrificTerri ,

 

Did you get any error message when PowerApps fails and asks for the values for Switch 4?

 

Please share more details on the error message.

 

I am trying to reproduce this issue on my side.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Re: Duplicating an Item in Series

Yes I did, it basically tells me to input the values.  I have tried inputting all the values and when switch 7 is complete then it errors as well.  However, this morning the flow is providing the error and fails the run - I am thinking it is the Flow with the issue.  Here is the last screen shot of the Flow failureCapture.JPG.

 

Here is a picture of the values for the switch:
