Can Switch control evaluate a variable?

Can the Switch control evaluate a variable the same way a Condition does? I am seeing a Flow run for a verrrrrrrrrrrry long time trying to figure out which switch path to go down. The action under the switch condition is simply to send an email message, so it really shouldn't be taking so long. The variable is set. The output looks correct.


So is this not feasible?

Hello @RachelRig 


It depends if the Switch is inside a loop, and if you're using Set variable anywhere.


Please upload a screenshot of your flow
