I was excited about the new Switch action in O365.
I have tried to add it inside a State Machine
But when I want to save, here is the error I receive.
If I remove the 3 Change State, I can save. I have selected a State in the 3 Chaneg State
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and sorry to have to put your excitement on hold. But good news, our team has investigated and resolved this issue. Please feel free to try again, it should work as expected.

I do not have the issue of saving, but the Change State 1 does not happen.
It by-passes the Change State 1 and runs the first action after the Switch.
May I ask you if you can reproduce the issue?
Same screenshot applies, except the error.
So sorry you are still having a problem and I appreciate your feedback. I will get our developers and testers right on to it, to see if they can reproduce it. If they can then to make corrections and test thoroughly the scenarios with Switch within a state machine.
Thank you once again for your time and trouble.
We could not replicate the problem but believe we can see what you were referring to. I have answered this specific case in more detail directly to you.
For others that are following this trail, I would like to highlight a few a few points (documented in the help file):
Why have we done this? It leads to safer Workflow design in that any unexpected non-valid value is trapped or the behaviour of ignoring the Switch Action on an invalid switch variable value is explicitly intended by the designer.
