01:00 — Kylie begins to create a simple flow for the purpose of the example, demonstrating how to implement a Switch Statement.
01:37 — In a Switch Statement, there is a “branch for each case” depending on the input — this would be applicable in any flow that has more than two options. A good example of this, explains Kylie, is in Approvals.
02:11 — The process of adding a Switch Statment to a flow in Power Automate is similar to adding a control, explains Kylie. She sets the parameters for the Switch Statement and also runs a Sentiment Analysis.
04:01 — Once the Switch Statment is set, Kylie runs the flow to test its capabilities.
04:46 — In closing, she notes that Switch Statements are “just a way to streamline your logic, [they] can reduce the number of steps in your flow, and make sure you’re doing this in the most effective way possible.”
