Email notification triggered for added Name, one time

Hello,

 

For a Sharepoint list in which our complaints are registered, I would like to have a new flow. One of the columns in the list is used to fill in the name of the person reponsible. This is added after the item is is created, so it's a modification of an item. I want an email to be sent automatically when a name is added. Right now, I use the flow below:

However, everytime I modify anything it sends an email for every item with a person's name attached, instead of just the newly added one. How do I arrange that an email is only sent one time for an item when someones name is added?  

 

Thanks,

Hi @Anonymous 

 

All the solutions that I can propose you are hacks, and I don't think it will help you.

 

Is there a way to do all in one Power Automate? For example, insert and update the value and then send the email as a sequence inside the Power Automate. Or even, when entering add the name right away?

 

Why are you having the name updated after the creation? It may make sense I just want to understand so that I can help you.

Hello Manuel,

 

Thank you very much for your response. The reason why I wanted to to it this way is because the sharepoint items are created when a form is filled in. In this form I can choose to fill in a person's name, but the corresponding column field in Sharepoint will be a plain text and will not be in the "person" format, if you understand what I mean. That way just looks nicer to me. 

 

Anyway, I will just use the form to fill it in then. 

 

Thanks,

Jolanda
