I am connecting to Dynamics 365, and want to have a condition that checks if an Option Set value is equal to "Yes". In CRM though, option sets have values like 3000758, which is what comes through in Flow. How can I get the text of an option set field? Do I have to use the int value of the option set field?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can add comments in your flow templates. I would prefer to check via number than a hardcoded text. If the text changes then there are depencies like flow and others to change which won't be a good design in my opinion.
@hazems another good point on why this would be useful. I can see arguments both ways on why we should/shouldn't be able to do this, but I think it the user should be able to use their discretion on whether or not to pull text vs. value.
I agree with @Shannon and have voted for this feature. I need to show the text rather than the numeric value in an email. The numeric value means nothing to the email recipient.
Found the easy solution add a label to the suffix to the field attribute schema name.
Example: Field attribute "ab_accountype" replace with "_ab_accounttype_label"
Which works for me.
