Flow Condition not recognizing field value

Hi.  I have a seemingly simple Flow that I can't seem to make work.  I have a Flow that triggers "When an item is created" on my SharePoint List.  Then, I have a condition that checks a Single Line of Text field that is populated from an OnSelect command from a Gallery in my Power App.  The OnSelect populates the Single Line of Text Field with the text correctly.  However, the Flow is not recognizing the text when triggered at creation.  I tried a workaround where I updated another text field with the content from the OnSelect field and then ran the condition on that duplicate field, but it's not working either.

 

Are you able to check a text field in a condition when the trigger is "When an item is created"?  I have the exact same Flow on another SharePoint list that is triggered "When and item is created or modified" and it's working perfectly when the item is modified (the conditions would never be satisfied on creation in that case).

 

Can anyone offer a helpful article or video or prior post?  I browsed, but did not find anything relevant. 

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi @cmegow 

 

Can you share more details on how the item is created? Is it created from the OnSelect button you have mentioned? Note that, the flow is triggered as soon as the item is created and if the OnSelect actually patches something or modified the item, the values for the columns with new data will not be detected in the flow. 

 

Hope this Helps!
