4 Replies and 1044 Views Question on designing a flow  1044  4 Started by  Ronnie Ok, so I am still learning at writing my own flows. Most of our big ones have been written for us by consultants. We have a flow that needs to be built that the users are wanting to check a field in HR00 to see if it is ever set to N. If it is, it needs to send an email.   How do I get a flow to look at a certain field on a form such as HR00   The table looks to be PRSYSTEM.

Have a number of flows that use the system command node - and currently these run with the option 'run cmd.exe as System Command user' - which utilizes the 'su' command to change to that user.
