Creating list item initiates "When an item or a file is modified" trigger

I have two separate flows -

1. send an email + Teams message when a Sharepoint item is created

2. send an email + Teams message when a Sharepoint item or file is modified


To my knowledge the second flow should not be initiated when a sharepoint item is created, and it wasn't initiating a couple of weeks ago when I first created these flows. Now when the sharepoint list item is created, both flows get initiated and 2 emails + 2 teams messages get sent out. I swear I haven't changed anything on my end but i could just have tired eyes from looking at it. I rebuilt the flows and made new flows and am experiencing the same issue, no matter what I do. Is this expected behavior or does anyone have any suggestions?


Hi @tgarciaowens 


You are right, the trigger when a SharePoint item or file is modified should not be started when an item is created, my suggestion is if the problem persists, please open a support ticket here with Microsoft Customer support.
