Flow notification when a field changes

Hi Everyone. 

 

Simple problem here that I cannot seem to figure out the best way to address.  I have a flow setup to send an e-mail when a certain column in my SharePoint is modified.  This works great, with one small issue.  When a new ROW is added to my SharePoint it notifies me that the column was changed.  Is there a way I can be notified of a change but NOT of a new row with that column?

Hi @SPAccount 

 

Your trigger is when an Item is created or modified isn't? So when you create a new list record by default this triggers. If you want to stop triggering for insert records please follow this post.

What is your trigger? Could you please post a screenshot?

Sorry I should have done that.

I should add that when the new rows are created they are completely blank.  So it isn't notifying me because the column has data.

I updated to a better picture.

Thank you, this solved it.  I was thrown off because the Microsoft template for this item says to "E-mail when changed", but the actual item is CREATED or CHANGED.  😞

I do have one more question.  Is there any way to limit the monitoring of this flow to a specific column in the SharePoint list being modified as opposed to the whole thing?

Hi @SPAccount 

 

Yes you can. There is a tutorial here

I watched the video, but I don't know if it really addressed my specific question.  It spoke about multiple triggers and such, but I guess I don't know the best way to add that column as a value to combine with the modified trigger.
