Split Field on Sharepoint


I have an App on Powerapps where i have 3 task


Task 1 

Task 2 that depends of Task 1

Task 3 that depends of Task 1 and Task 2

So, I have a Predecessor_Task Field on Sharepoint where i save the ID of each Task.


When i finished Task 1 i call an Flow where i search about what tasks depends of This task and send Email notifications to star these Tasks.

So. i create a conditions


If Predecessor_Task is equal to ID ->Send Email


I have the flow created until here.


The problem is the next, i have some records where i have 2 or mas task separated with comma, for example Task 3. She depends of Task1 and Task2 to start and send notifications and into Predecessor_Task i saved (1, 2)


So, continuos with the last "IF" ...  en case FALSE i need to create another conditions and ask :


If Predecessor_Task contains ID :

  1. In case False: do nothing
  2. In case TRUE: i need to split the Predecessor_Task Field and search for each ID to know if all task are completed or not (Task_Status field)... In case true... Send Email.


How can i do this? I need the step by step please

Re: Split Field on Sharepoint

Hi @ivpd ,


Could you please share the Flow you have created about task 1?

About the column of or_task you mentioned, can you share an example? What data type of column is stored in SharePoint list? From your description, it may be text type, I am not sure.

If you want to split strings, you can use split() function: functions-reference#split

E.g. split (' or_task ', ', ')
