Use Case

Using MS Flows to retrieve the bunch of students who’s mobile numbers begin with +91 and send them a text (using Twilio connector) regarding the Top Indian Universities. The “starts with” filter query in MS Flows allows to easily achieve this functionality.

    • new_phonenumber” is the logical name of the field which stores the phone number of students.
    • ‘+91’ is the value of phone number by which we want to filter the retrieved student list.
    • Enter the above query in Filter Query:
  3. Run the flow to test.It will return all the students whose phone number starts with “+91”
