unable to run powerautomate based up on checkbox multi values

Hello Everyone, 


I am trying to run powerautomate when a folder is created and modified if "Test" column is selected. This test column is checkbox column with multi selected. If it is single select my flow is working fine. 

Scenario: My flow can copy folder from one library to another sitecollection under a library based up on the URL from additional list. But I want that folder to be copied to multiple sites based up on multiple selections. Is there a way? Below is my flow


Stpes: When an item is created or modified (trigger only if "test" column is not empty)

2. Initialize variable called "Multichoice" as string.

3. condition = isfolder equals to True

4. Apply to each 

      COlumn = test

      4.1 . Append to string (multichoice  variable with column "test['value'])

       4.2.  Get items (the reason to get items is to get URL when multichoice is matched with "title" of this list, and then copy folder to that site dynamically)

       4.3.  Apply to each 

               4.3.1. condition = Title is equal to Multichoice

               4.3.2.  Create New folder. 





It is creating only in one site even though we have selected multiple choices. Any thought on this one please?

@rsaikrishna Thanks for you support. I was able to fix this by using "Set variable" for each Choice value.

Please try flipping the condition as below:


MultiChoice  contains  Title




Please give a try and let me know if you have any more questions.
