Multiple Flows with Same Name

I am working on creating my first Flow from my SharePoint 365 list and I used the "Send a customized email when a new SharePoint list item is added" option.  

 

I have everything working with the flow but now when I go to create another flow to do the same thing for a different SharePoint list, the same one that I customized shows up under My flows.  If I change it for my new list, won't it also change for the original list?  How do I have 2 flows that does the same thing for 2 different lists?  Do I have to give it a new name?

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi dedeod,

 

When creating a flow, if you don’t specify a special name for it, the flow name will be automatically saved as the trigger name + action name. You could also give it a specific name so that you could know it better.

 

In this case, if you create two flows with the same trigger and action based on two different lists, the flows would be triggered when a new item is created in the corresponding list. But if you have several more flows with the same trigger and action, it would be better to give it a new name so that you could know which list it is based on at the first glance of it.

 

Please feel free reply if you need more help.
