Flow duplicating output

I've made a flow that looks for flagged emails in outlook, and will create an item in a SharePoint list.  The problem I'm having is that it seems to create multiple copies of the item in the list over the span of a few days from the same flagged email.  Is there a setting or additional condition I need to set to keep the flow from executing multiple times on the same email?

Hi DW,

 

I just created a flow like below: (if this is not the one like yours, please post a screenshot of your flow)

After I flagged 3 emails in the target mailbox, I got 3 runs in flow and 3 new items in sharepoint.

I don't know why you got multiple times creating on sharepoint items, would you please try with a new flow and a different inbox folder?

Hey Mona,

 

I ended up re creating the flow, and changed it to a specific folder it monitored for flagged emails instead of my entire inbox.  It now seems to be working as intended.  Thank you!
