n00b needs help with what should be a simple.... OR

Esteemed Collegues,


I have what I believe to be a very straighforward Flow that looks at my inbox, pulls email based on sender and the looks for a key word in the body. 


When I have it set up to only look for one word- things work great.


@contains(triggerBody()?['Body'], 'ch33')



I just need to reach the next step where I can enter multiple values

maybe something like;

@contains(triggerBody()?['Body'], 'ch33'OR '802422' OR 'joex')


can anyone help out this n00b with identify the proper format to have multiple values?


thank you much!!!!

Hi @chico,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Have you solved your problem?


I think your thought is right, you could take a try to click "Edit in advanced mode" within your Condition box and then type the following formula:

@or(contains(triggerBody()?['Body'], 'ch33'),contains(triggerBody()?['Body'], '802422'),contains(triggerBody()?['Body'], 'joex'))

More details about the or() expression within Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:


More details about using expression in flow actions, please check the following article:

If you have any other questions about Microsoft Flow, please feel free to reply here.
