Stuck with checkbox to yes/no instead true/false

Hi,

 

My flow with PowerApps, SP is almost done. The layout in Outlook is awesome except i need to change checkbox from true/false. When i check the flow, is this the column:

 

@{triggerBody()?['Testcolumn']}. I tried the combination but till know, nothing works. When i copy my examples, Flow doenst see the TestColumn, who sees my fault?

if(equals{(triggerBody()?['testcolumn']},True),'Yes','No')
if(equals@(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],True),'Yes','No')
if@(equals@(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],True),'Yes','No')
if(@equals@(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],True),'Yes','No')

Re: Stuck with checkbox to yes/no instead true/false

The easyest way to add an expression in Flow is by means ofthe option Dynamic Content available in almost all Action blocks. If you add it this way you don't need neither {} characters nor the @ character

What's the format of triggerBody()?['testcolumn']? is it a string or a boolean?

Do you want to convert it to a string 'Yes' / 'No'?

 

In my opinion, the easiest way to inspect the content of triggerBody()?['testcolumn'] is to add it as Dynamic Content in a Compose action block, run again the Flow, and inspect the results

Assuming you want to convert triggerBody()?['testcolumn'] to a 'Yes' / 'No' string, please also note:

-if triggerBody()?['testcolumn'] is type boolean (True / False) you can represent it by different means, one of then is by means of the expressions: bool(1) / bool(0). So... if(equals(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],bool(1)),'Yes','No')

-if triggerBody()?['testcolumn'] is type string, you need to use ' character. So... if(equals(triggerBody()?['testcolumn'],'True'),'Yes','No')

 

Hope this helps

Re: Stuck with checkbox to yes/no instead true/false

Hi! 

 

That looks nice. I used the checkbox column in the Send to outlook connector. After this i saw the output was true or false instead yes/no. I will try your solution, thanks!
