Actions in this flow may result in an infinite trigger loop

Hi everyone,

 

I have an approval flow which is triggered on when a status column changes in a list item. 

 

Once the item is approved I want to update a column in that item with the responders name  in one of the columns but every time i add an update statement i get the error......

"Actions in this flow may result in an infinite trigger loop. Please ensure you add appropriate conditional checks to prevent this flow from triggering itself."

What am I missing?

 

Any help/suggestion would be much appreciated.

 

Regards,

Syed

The error is to warn you that you are doing an update of an item in a flow that is triggered when an item is updated.  Make sure you add a trigger condition to keep the flow from re-activating when the update is made in the flow.

Thanks @Pstork1 ,

 

Can you explain what that would look like?I'm assuming there is a simple way to achieve this?
