Flow self perpetuates

Hi all,

 

I have a Flow that runs when items in a SharePoint library are modified.

It updates the item's metadata based on xyz criteria.

The trouble is that when it updates the item it initiates another instance of the same Flow... leading it to running and initiating itself perpetually.

The flow only takes 2 seconds to run but there's typically around 5 minutes or so between runs.

Is there any clever workaround here? is Flow really that dumb? ..or am i???

 

thanks, 

Andy

Hi @muira if you post a screenshot of your flow we'll be better able to see where changes might be needed.
