    Do you have a unique identifier for the list item you want to compare to?

  • Yes, you will need a way to identify that specific list item. Other than a single unique field value you can do a REST query and filter based on multiple columns.

On the 'Field Data to Retrieve' section you can select the list and field you are wanting to compare. The 'Find the List Item' section allows you to filter to a specific item in the list. In this example you are saying I want the Title field from the Calendar list where the ID field in that list is equal to 12345.

If you do not give a unique identifier you will get a warning that if more than one result is returned only the first item will be used.
