Invalid Template Error For Switch Case



I am attempting to run a flow and it is failing. The flow is for document changes and risk assessment. The flow is: When an item is created> Send an email > Update item switch case (based on email response) > Send an email.


The flow runs fine if the first condition in the switch case is satisfied. If 2, 3, or 4 are selected, I get the following error in the next send email step:

InvalidTemplate. Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Send_email_with_options_2' inputs at line '1' and column '2562': 'The template language expression 'body('Update_item')['Title']' cannot be evaluated because property 'Title' cannot be selected. Please see for usage details.'
Any help is appreciated.

Hi @ATodd,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?


The error message told that the template language expression 'body('Update_item')['Title']' cannot be evaluated because property 'Title' cannot be selected.


Please share more details so we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.


Best regards,

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for giving this attention. Here is a screen grab. An email is sent with options when an item is created. Recipient can select 'Level 1' 'Level 2' or 'Level 3.' If 'Level 1' is selected, the flow continues, but any other option will cause it to fail. If I rebuild the flow it works at first, then I get the same error after some time.
