and to the uploader,  then HR department make the changes to the file, the flow then send out a mail to IT department to take Action for the file, but here is the problem with the flow it seems that the flow sends out mail a soon you do some HRchanges to the content of the file, but this it not ok, we need to have mail then all modified Content of the files is done and the HR is sure everyting is done so i did Column thats is "Approved" Yes/No. and that is this what emails sohuld be send on. not the modiication of the contet of the Document  .so i need to have email send on then the Approved is Yes,

Re: Emails from flow to many!

Hi @tommyrihu,

 

You could add an action "Delay" or "Delay Until" to delay the "send an mail" action in flow.

 

Or you could consider modifing the "send an mail" action to "send an mail with options" action.If you use the "send an mail with options" action in your flow the following action after the  "send an mail with options" action wouldn't run until the email have made an option on the received email.

 

Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

 

Best regards,

Alice
