The following is my flow:
STATUS LOG (only part)
I also have another identical flow but addresses a "Distributor" text field rather than "Publisher".
SO FAR 5 DAYS SPENT SIMPLY TRYING TO FILTER A DROP DOWN BASED ON A MMDfield. ???? Really??
Hello @CW ,
I suppose you're dealing with the infinite trigger loop. You trigger flow on item update, and then you the update later in the flow, which will trigger another flow as you just did an update, and it goes on and on and on.
You'll have to implement some way how to stop the trigger loop: https://tomriha.com/how-to-avoid-infinite-trigger-loop-in-power-automate/
Tx Tom. Yes saw those but I’m the only account, no other account would ever be invoking it so this wont work. Besides, if one has to go through all that rigamarole to end a yes no flow then……………………………I’ll use something else (other collaborative platform) a bit more functional. Moreover, the interval between when this flow will be used is realtivley long so msft will probably turn it off before it gets used again.
This is a reason I stopped using SharePoint for over a year. All the flows I setup got turned off then had to go in and figure out which flows I needed again. At the end of the day it’d saved a hell of a lot of time, effort and frustration doing it manually.
I very very much resent that turning flows off. WHO are they to determine when and how often people use flows?????????????????????
