Need for a trigger that says "When an item is modified"

Hi, 

 

I am trying to create a sharepoint workflow where people are notified when an item is added to a list. That's easy. 

 

The person who is notified should be able to make changes to the added item in the list (fill in some columns, add an attachment,...). When he/she saves the changes, the person who initially added the item should be notified of those changes. And so on. The email that is sent when a modification is made should look different than the "new item is added" email. 

 

I have the feeling that I need a trigger that only works when an item is modified, not when an item is created or modified. 

 

Does anybody know of the existence of such a tool? Or does anybody know how the fix this issue using existing connectors?

 

Many thanks.

Hi @AVH,

 

To trigger a flow only when an item is modified, but not when an item is created or modified, please try the following workaround.


Please add a Condition after the trigger with Created equal to Modified. If they are equal, then it means that the item is newly created, if not, then the item is modified.


Then you could add other actions under the If No branch.


Please take the following screenshot for a reference:
