Multiple Triggers

I want my flow to trigger when a new item is added or an existing item is updated in SharePoint. I could not find a way to add two triggers.

So do I have to create two flows to achieve that functionality?

Re: Multiple Triggers

Hi @Damitha,

 

Adding multiple triggers in Microsoft Flow is not supported currently, but this is a good idea.

Please consider submit this an an idea in Microsoft Flow idea forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

In addition, if you refers to SharePoint list new item or the update existing item,  then use the When an existing item is updated should meet the requirements you mentioned here, when a new item is added, the When an existing item is updated will also be triggered. There is no need to add those two mentioned triggers for this situation.

Re: Multiple Triggers

You can create one flow for each trigger and then have them all call the flow that does the work.

I created a flow that would send an email notification every time a new record was inserted into a table in an sql database.

I wanted to make sure that no records were missed if the flow was briefly inactivated or something so I created another flow that is triggered once a day.

 

Both these two flows just picks up the data from the newly created records from the database and then triggers a third flow to run and send an email for each of the records picked up.

 The third flow is triggered "When HTTP request is received" and all the data from the calling flow is passed to it in the body of the request.
