Email if Manager changes

I have a flow that works with a SharePoint list and pulls in the name of the man ager for a  person associated with an item in the list. Is there anyway I can make another flow to check weekly if the manager name is different from the last time the flow ran then send me an email informing me of the change. Is this possible?

Set recurrence flow for every 7 days.

in the "Since" field using expression set date to today's date - 7.

next step is condition statement.

you can check "Has Manager Colum changed" equal to true?

There is no way of which I am aware that you can check to see if a  manager has changed.  Your best bet might be to add a column to your list (you can make the column hidden) and store the manager to whom the last email was sent.  Compare the value in that column with the current manager the next time an email is sent.  You'll also need to update the manager in the list if it has changed.
