What are the alternatives to using Flows for server-side SharePoint operations given the horrendous online designer/editor app?
The more I use it, the more I loathe it. It just seems so cumbersome for all but small tasks and feels like it would be far simpler to just edit the code using a text editor. Things like the expression editor width are extremely frustrating where it gets clipped:
I will admit that I am a new user, so perhaps some of this is due to inexperience.
I agree - the environment for working with expressions could be better.... Try turning on experimental features - you'll see a new experience for working with expressions:
Thanks @ScottShearer. I gave that a try, but it doesn't seem to work for expressions within a condition unfortunately. Or is there another way? This particular expression is only used in one place.
You are correct - it is still experimental...
What you might consider doing is using Compose actions for you expressions and then referencing the Compose actions in the condition. Also, I always put the expression in the action comments so that I can easily see what I did.
