File created but metadata not ready

Hi Friends,


I am trying to create a flow triggered by "file created(properties only)", and use the metadata in the following steps. I found that when I upload a file of certain content type (with certain metadata) , the flow is triggered before I enter the metadata. So the following steps failed because the metadata are empty.


So I change the trigger to "file created or modified(properties only)", and set a condition when modified property does not equal to created property.


In this way, the flow will be triggered twice. The first time is when the file is created and the the second time is when I finally enter the metadata properties. This works for me. But there is a potential need to modify the file later but I dont want the flow to run then.


Do you have any suggestions?

I also tried use do... until condition, but it does not work as anticipated.
