Microsoft has long had a thriving technical community. From members here on the Microsoft Tech Community forums to in-person events and more around the world, the community has supported learning, career development, and personal development. Community initiatives, like SharePoint Saturdays that were already evolving to embrace more Microsoft 365 services, were deeply impacted by the pandemic.

Automation is undoubtedly one of the most coveted skills a programmer can possess. Automation is typically used for tasks that are repetitive, boring, time-consuming, or otherwise inefficient without the use of a script.

In this Bot, we are using a URL called canarys.GreytHR.com where it will automatically login to the greytHR website, from there it explores some of the functions, and then it will log out.

If you have a SharePoint list, SharePoint file property, or Excel table, and you want your flow to trigger ONLY when a certain value is entered or selected (e.g. “Start”), you will want to write a Trigger Condition in your Trigger Action/Card Settings. I use this a lot, to give the end user control over when the flow starts (like to start an approval, send a notification, generate a pdf, or to re-trigger a flow that failed or timed out). Or, to trigger a flow that updates something else. Or, to trigger secondary flows at any time, past the 30 days when the first flow ran.

 

While you could use a Condition as your first action after your trigger, using a Trigger Condition is cleaner.

 

I have found that the syntax you will use to write your Trigger Condition will vary, to match what is shown in ARRAY, and whether it is a TEXT or CHOICE column/property.
