Create Dynamics 365 Leads from an Excel table - Flow is creating duplicate many records

I am making use of the "Create Dynamics 365 Leads from an Excel table". template. 

 

When the data is moved into CRM and creates a new lead record, each time the reoccurance runs it duplicates the lead records. 

 

How can I prevent the flow from creating duplicates and only adding a record when i create a new line of information in Excel?

 

Thanks for the help

Marcus

Re: Create Dynamics 365 Leads from an Excel table - Flow is creating duplicate many records

Hi @MarcusDaytonas7,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Do you create your flow using the "Create Dynamics 365 Leads from an Excel table" built-in template?

 

I think there is something wrong with the "Create Dynamics 365 Leads from an Excel table" built-in template, please take a try to create your flow from scratch. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a "Recurrence" trigger, Interval set to 2 and Frequency set to Minute.
  • Add a "Get rows" action, specify File name and Table name.
  • Add a Condition, click "Edit in advanced mode", type the following formula:
@empty(body('Get_rows')?['value'])

 

  • Within "If/yes" branch of Condition, do nothing. Within "If/no" branch of Condition, add a "Apply to each" action, input parameter set to output of the "Get rows" action, within "Apply to each" action, add a "Create a new record" action, specify Organization Name and Entity Name.

         Under "Apply to each" action, add a "Apply to each 2" action, input parameter set to output of the "Get row" action, within "Apply to each 2" action, add a "Delete row" action, specify File Name and Table Name, Row id field set to Row id dynamic content of the "Get rows" action.
