Flows Repeat Several Times (sometimes10+)

I'm not sure what happened, flows which were working fine are now all of a sudden running 10+ times when triggered only once.  Below are screenshots of what I've got.  When a list item is updated in Sharepoint, it triggers the flow.  Thought that perhaps adding the function for it to check if a list item with the same task assigned and if so, not creating another one.

 

Not sure if this is the issue though as when looking at the history, the flow is run several times.  Not certain the reason it would be started several times when the update to the list item only occurred once.

 

Have been working on this for quite some time, any guidance is most welcome!

Found a solution for this issue:

 

Ends up that there was a loop going with the "When an item is created or modified".  To correct this, I added another column to the list with a yes/no field.  When the flow is initiated for the first time, a "Condition" is run to check if the checkbox is marked "no".  If it is, the flow runs.  At the end of that initial flow, the item which triggered the flow is updated so that column is changed to "yes".

 

Once it attempts to run again, the "Condition" checks to see if the column is marked "no", as it is marked yes, it stops.

 

Hope this helps anyone else who runs into this issue.

Hi @jierna ,

 

If there is update item/Create item action in this flow? If yes, a loop will be generated and the error you encountered will occur.
