Why isn't "Only when... This data type's field..." an option?

When I run the action “Make change to a list of…”, I can set a field to equal “This data type’s field” like this:


…but I can’t find “Only when… This data type’s field is…”:


Just wondering why not? Wouldn’t that be useful?

It’s working on my side. I found that sometime I have to refresh my browser to get again all available options.


I would imagine is it’s because the condition composer can’t access each individual Thing like the field composers can (kind of like how you can’t access an individual repeating group cell from outside the RG).

You could work around this by using an API workflow and scheduling on a List. That way you can pass “This Thing” as a parameter and add the condition to the API endpoint.
