Have an approval start when a list item status changes

Greetings 

 

I have created a flow intended to start off an approval request once an Item in my list has a status changed from "reserved" to "Submitted". I'm thinking that I may need to restart the flow with the "when an item is created or modified trigger"? If so, how would I set it so that the approval only kicks off once a list item changes to submitted?

Well it depends on what you want

 

If you put it in this trigger, the flow will only run when a new item is created that has status: submitted

 

If you want the flow to run when an item is changed, you have to change the trigger to when an item is modified

Heya,

 

You can use a odata filter query to only trigger the flow when the item created matches certain conditions

 

Status eq 'Submitted'

 

For example

Thanks, I've never used an odata filter query before so would that be set in directly after the "when an item is created" trigger?
