True/False to Text in Flow

Hello Community,

 

I'm trying to send a mail in Flow gathering information from my SharePoint list whenever a form has been submitted. However when I try to gather information from a Yes/No column it shows as true or false. I want to have this text changed and I have tried various Expressions without any luck. I found a topic where someone asked the same question, however he wanted it when true show none and when false that it creates a custom text.

 

if(triggerBody()?['ColumnName'],null, 'Change wire')

I simply want to change my YES/NO column to the text YES/NO instead of true or false.

 

Thanks.

Hey @Fouad 

 

Try using this expression now

 

if(empty(string(body('Get_item')?['Klantgegevens'])),null,if(equals(body('Get_item')?['Klantgegevens'],true),'Yes','No'))

Hope this Helps!

Hey @Fouad 

 

Can you share a screenshot of the flow? note that True/false are the actual values for yes/no (yes and no are basically labels). therefore to check that in flow, you need to check with true/ false (boolean values). 

 

The expression you shared is a bit incomplete. are you trrying to check if the trigger body column name is null? if so you need to add teh equals expression too. 

 

if(equals(triggerBody()?['ColumnName'],null),value iftrue, valueiffalse)

 

If you can share more details, we might better assist you with this. 

 

Hope this Helps!

- This SharePoint column is Yes/No type of column

- When I run this 'Send an email' Flow it shows me either - False if I selected 'No' in my Form and True if I selected 'Yes' in my FormScr2.PNG

Hey @Fouad 

 

for Yes/No column type of true/false boolean values, you can use this expression on a variable: 

Initialise a variable and in the expression :

if(empty(triggerBody()?['ColumnName']),null,if(equals(triggerBody()?['ColumnName'],'true'),'Yes','No'))

This will change the value to Yes if the boolean is true.

Unfortunately this did not help me.. when I select 'Yes' for boolean it gives me true (just like how it did before) - Column name is: Klantgegevens

This is what it says in mail

 

This is where I placed the variable in HTML body.SCR6.PNG

 

Hey @Fouad 

 

can you try removing the single quotes from true and try running the flow again?

if(empty(triggerBody()?['Klantgegevens']),null,if(equals(triggerBody()?['Klantgegevens'],true),'Yes','No'))
Didn't work 😕

Hey @Fouad 

 

It is not working because you are referring to the wrong field. Which action is returnign the yes/no type field? 

 

I tested with a get items action and in the apply to each I am sending some stuff so based on that the expression is: 

if(empty(string(items('Apply_to_each')?['TaskStatus'])),null,if(equals(items('Apply_to_each')?['TaskStatus'],true),'Yes','No'))

Here, taskstatus is the column name and is of type yes/no and the apply to each is iterating over each item from the get items. 

 

if you are doing it on the get item action, replace the reference to the field accordingly.

What am I doing wrong here 😕SCR7.PNG

 

Hey @Fouad 

 

You are initializing the wrong type of variable at the wrong place. Basically you won't need to set a variable for this. If you can share some details on the scenario that you are building, I might be able to assist you better with this

This worked for me thanks!!

 

How do I make the same expression but then when the attachment has been added to the SharePoint list?

Hey @Fouad 

 

Can you share more details? Note that while creating expressions, if you want to use the dynamic content in the expression, try writing the expression and selecting the dynamic content within the expression to avoid any errors over there. Yuo can also initialize some variables and assign the values to that variables and use them in expressions initially for a better understanding. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Thanks. I got it right by the following code:

if(empty(string(body('Get_item')?['{HasAttachments}'])),null,if(equals(body('Get_item')?['{HasAttachments}'],true),'Yes','No'))
