Avoid MS Forms duplicate submissions

Hello, I am using forms with a flow to collect the responses in MS List. Occasionally the reply is sent twice. I can't find a suitable trigger to intercept this. is there a way to catch this?

@Wunder there is no trigger to do that. When each response is submitted you would need a get items action to get the items currently in your list. Then have an apply to each to loop through the list and in that have a condition to compare a column with a unique value, for example, an email address, against the email address of the person responding. If it's already in the list then do nothing but if not then create the item.
