Multiple IF Statements in Microsoft Flow

I am using the following syntax for multiple if statements in Microsoft Flow. 


if(equals(outputs('Fields')['id'],'IEAB3W4AJUAAXPOQ'),'Classification',

if(equals(outputs('Fields')['id'],'IEAB3W4AJUAAXPPN'),'State',

if(equals(outputs('Fields')['id'],'IEAB3W4AJUAAXPOW','Category','Other'))

 

FYI - This code is inside a Compose and inside an Apply To Each. As it loops through, I am checking for the output value and comparing it with a string value. Basically, I need to verify the ID value and if the ID matches assign a display name such as Classification, State, Category and if the id does not match, then we use a display name of Other.

 

I would like to know if there is anything missing with this syntax multiple if statement? or if it is possible at all to do this with the outputs function?

@0365:

 

While I haven't taken the time to check your logic ad syntax, it appears at first glace that using a switch statement might be a less complicated option for your to use.

Hi @0365,

 

You said that the Compose is inside an Apply to each, I assume that you are getting a list of items first, then return a corresponding value to the item.

 

Please take the following code for a reference:

if(equals(items('Apply_to_each')?['Title'],'test1'),'classroom',if(equals(items('Apply_to_each')?['Title'],'test2'),'state','other'))

 

I am using the code to return value to each item in the list, and it works fine.

Thank you Mabel and Scott for your responses. 

 

 I figured out what is wrong with the code and below is the correct and working code. 

 

if(equals(outputs('Fields')['id'],'IEAB3W4AJUAAXPOQ'),'Classification',

if(equals(outputs('Fields')['id'],'IEAB3W4AJUAAXPPN'),'State',

if(equals(outputs('Fields')['id'],'IEAB3W4AJUAAXPOW','Category','Other')))

 

In summary, yes we can do multiple if statements in Flow and use equals to compare values.

I've written about a new feature in Flow that would allow you to visually construct complex if/then statements using the condition control: https://sharepointlibrarian.com/2019/02/05/flow-now-supports-multiple-condition-controls-for-advance...

So I am creating a workflow in Flow where I I need several statements to send email notifications to different users if condition equals x and if condition equals y.  

 

And "State" equal to "Delaware - DE"

  Or

      "State" equal to "Maryland - MD"

       "State" equal to "Pennsylvania - PA"

 

          Or

              "I am pleased with the overall quality of service " is equal to "Strongly Disagree"

               "I am pleased with the overall quality of service" is equal to "Disagree"

 

If no send email notification to user a

 

However, I need to create another statement that sends email notification to user b if "State" equals to "Arkansas - AR" 

Same logic as above but to different states.

 

Do I create this using a parallel branch or as a sequence or another step?

Thank you for this guidance!  I now have a nested IF statement within a "Compose" action that converts the textual value from a Customer Voice Survey Question response, converts it to the "integer" value for the picklist in Dynamics and then updates the dynamics record!  Happy days!!
