I have created a long flow, now I realize I have chosen the wrong trigger, if I delete the current trigger, I may lose the following actions in the flow. How can change the trigger type without losing following steps?

Re: How can I change flow trigger without losing the following actions

It depends on which trigger you are using.  If your trigger does not have any outputs used by other actions in your flow, you can simply right click, choose delete and remove the old trigger and then choose your new trigger.


If the trigger contains outputs that are being referenced later in your flow, you'll have to remove the references to those outputs in the later actions before you can remove and replace the trigger.

Re: How can I change flow trigger without losing the following actions


Hi @jeanwang ,


If the following action uses the output of the trigger body, then when you delete the trigger, the configured content will be removed.

You could consider using a workaround that you can create a copy of Flow. Whenever I need to change the complex configuration of a Flow, I often click Save as to create a copy of the Flow first, which will help restore the configuration of the previous version.

Please take a try.
