Get email notification if a specific file on a Sharepoint folder gets updated

Okay, so I tried this flow and it doesn't quite get the job done because I get email notifications whenever someone updates any file on the specified Sharepoint folder. Is there a way to only get notified if XYZFile gets updated?

Re: Get email notification if a specific file on a Sharepoint folder gets updated

Hi @olimilo,


Could you please share an sample of the XYZ file that you mentioned?

Do you want to get notified only when the specified file (XYZ file) is updated?


If you want to get notified only when the specified file (XYZ file) is updated, you could consider take a try to add Condition to check if the updated file is the specified file, if yes, send the notification, if no, do nothing.


I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:6.JPG

Within Condition box, left input box set to File name with extension dynamic content of the trigger, right input box set to the file name of a specified file (on my side, it is TaskLists.xlsx), within middle drop down, choose is equal to.


Note: I assume that if the specified file TaskLists.xlsx is updated in my SharePoint library, the flow would send an notification.


The flow works successfully as below:

When the specific file is updated:


When any other files are updated:8.JPG
