What happened to Flow condition????

HI All,

What happened to the complex conditions in FLOW?   

All I have now is the basic with an add button to add more basic conditions!

I create flows for when items are created or modified. 

I use a condition where modified = created for new items.  (And of course I have to convert to my timezone)

then I use complex conditions where I test for empty columns to send send out update alerts.

I can have 5 or more alerts sent in one FLOW. 

--New items go to a group

--updated items go to another group when some column is updated

--updated items go to other groups based on other updated columns. ... 

I tried to use the new basic "where sent to is not equal to" and I left the criteria blank, but that didnt work.  it sent even when the column was blank.

then I tried where not equal to '' also failed like leaving empty!

 

Can someone please tell me how to do the below in the new basic condition?

@and(not(empty(triggerBody()?['DateSent'])),not(empty(triggerBody()?['DateSentToTax'])),empty(triggerBody()?['DateSentTo']),empty(triggerBody()?['DateReviewedByTaxDept']))

 

Thanks,

Joe

Please refer to the blog post if you would like to refer how to use the advanced mode with the same expression.

Here are other alternatives:

 

Option 1:

Option2:

Use expression for left hand side (LHS) and right hand side (RHS)

LHS row 1: empty(body('Send_me_a_mobile_notification'))

LHS row 2 : not(empty(body('Send_me_a_mobile_notification')))

Thanks for the quick reply Prabir.

 

I'm still running into an issue.  I am trying to use the following Expression in the LHS after a GetItems step is executed using a Sharepoint List:

 

@empty(body('Get_items')?['value'])
 
When I attempt to enter ths into the LHS as an Expression in the Condition Step shown below, I get an 'Invalid Expression' error.  (This is the expression that I had been using in the previous version of Flow, via the Advanced function.

sorry this was such a quick and unexpected change, and I had to get this complete so I was able to move onto another project.  You may run into a few more, I had to get a quick answer.
