Create and Update on field change not record change.

Yesterday I was looking into moving my CRM workflows into a flows. I have some pretty basic ones that create a name for a record when created and I was able to do that.

In the previous workflow have the option to execute the workflow on ‘create’ or ‘field change’. I realized that in 'flow' the CSD connector triggers on ‘create’ or ‘update’ but not both. Well, that’s a little inconvenient, but still doable. I did a ‘save as’ on my flow and created an ‘update’ version and it was then that I realized that this would execute every time the record changed. We only want it to trigger if a field value changed.


I can’t find a way to limit the execution on a field change and not every record change. Any direction would be appreciated.

Re: Create and Update on field change not record change.



Unfortunately, Microsoft Flow could not support one or more field in CDS modified perform it now. The only way to set the condition is when some field is equal to a special value, such as when an item modified and the "Name" field is equal to "Bob", perform it.


If you want this feature that when a special field modified trigger the Flow, you can head to IDEA forum to submit your idea, collect votes to make it come true:
