For those that have used conditions in Power Automate well may have seen the Switch control and want to know what the difference is and how you can benefit from using one.
Similar to the Condition action, a switch requires a query to meet a specific value. The specific value are known as ‘cases‘ which allows you to then continue your path for different outcomes as required.
[Value 1] equals [Value 2]
or [Value 1] equals [Value 3]
or [Value 1] equals [Value 4]
To explain ‘cases‘, we need to consider the last values as the output trees similar to the condition action where each value has a tree to continue completing other actions. For example:
Value 2 may send an email to the manager
Value 3 may send a Microsoft Teams message
Value 4 may terminate the flow
