Infinate loop caused from existing item is modified trigger and update item action

I'm new to buliding flows and could use some help. The intent for my flow set up is to be used as an interface to document communciation, until an item on a list has been appoved. This will require several back and forth comments on one item. In my list, I have a comment column for the back and forth communciation. I'd like a way to put a time stap and username to each change that is made in this column inside the column. I know modifications can be seen under version history, however I want the comment column to also hold version history. This will allow users to see the history of the comment column from the Outlook "link to item" webpage, which they can access from the email that is triggered by modification of the list.


I am using two flows to attempt to exicuate my wants. The first is sending an email when a list item is created. That is working fine. The second flow will email users when an existing item is modifed, and symotaniously update item with modified and modified by in the comment column. The second flow is causing an infinite loop. I know this isn't the correct approach however, I have no clue how to get what I'm asking for.

Hi @ AprilFlores,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow’s configuration?

Could you please show more details about your sharepoint list?

 

I have made a research on my side, the issue is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently,

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

Hi Alice,

 

Thank you for responding to my question. I've solved my problem by using a an infopath form and appending changes to existing text for my column advanced option.
