Beginner user. I am creating an approval flow for whenever a file in a Sharepoint document library (not list) has been either created or modified. If a file has been created or modified, it starts an approval flow to have the approver review and approve the created/modified file. Once approved, it starts a custom approval flow to notify a group of people of the approved created/modified file and asks them to download it and click "approve" to acknowledge that they've downloaded the created/modified file.
My issue seems to be with the first condition. I'm not familiar with conditions, so I gave it my best shot and it's not working. Whenever I upload a file (created, in this case), it works and it goes down the "yes" path. Whenever I modify a file, however, it still goes down the "yes" path when it should be going down the "no" path.
Could someone please explain how I should correctly set up this condition?
Hi @numberfive ,
You can replace one of the Created in the first Condition with Modified.
Please take a try.
I have tried that before and it didn't work. I tried it again just now and it still didn't work. When I used Modified is equal to Created, any time a file was created, it went down the modified path. When a file was modified, however, it worked correctly and went down the modified path.
I looked at Sharepoint and noticed that whenever I upload (create) a document, it says that it has been BOTH modified and created at the same time. But when a file is modified, only the time listed under the modified column is updated. I attached a screenshot of some examples of that. The underlined items are when I actually modified a file. Everything else was uploaded.
I believe this might be creating the issue. How should I adjust the condition with that in mind?
