Have you ever wanted to disable an action in your Power Automate flow? It is just 3 clicks away.
Disable an action with Static Result
So you have built a flow and there is just that one step that you want to disable for a while. It is always those steps that you want to disable that took a long time to put together.
Did you add an always false condition or did you use run after settings to disable an action?
In my flow example below I just want to disable he Create table action for a while. In this post I will show you an easy way to do this.
In the ellipses menu of the action you will find the Static result feature. It hasn’t been enabled for all actions, but for quite a few it has.
This gets you to the Enable Static Result toggle. Switch it on and …
… we now could configure output that we want to be generated. But I’m just going to click on Done.
Now the action will be marked with a yellow laboratory glass.
And in my flow run the glass will turn blue and the action is successful.
Now when I look at the action’s flow run details I can see that OK is returned and nothing else. In other words my action has been enabled and the action configuration is ignored until I disable the static result.

Why not just make a switch enable or disabled?
I agree a switch would be nice but then this is close enough to a switch to me.
Interesting alternative use for the static results feature
Thanks a lot !
