Create folder when a specific column of a list item is updated

Hello,

 

Is it possible (or, more precisely, is there a workaround) to create folders when a specific column for an item in a list is updated?
e.g.

 

Sharepoint list - one of the columns is a choice column, let's say it has - New, In Process, Done, Out -  choices.

They are changed by the people working with the items.

 

What I want to do:
When the state column is changed to - In Process, create folders in document library/ies (on the same site as the list)

 

Which of the Sharepoint connectors have to be used (out of the two available regading item updates) and how to only do it when a specific column is changed? I have no need to do this when any other column is updated.


Thanks!

Hi @RalfsZ 

Thank you for posting.

According to your description, you want to create folder when a specific column of a list item is updated.

You can set Trigger Conditions offers the option to check Trigger Properties and additional logic to determine if the Flow should run at all.

Please take a try with the following screenshots.

Flow will only run when the choice value is changed to in process
