Run flow only when status column has changed and the record is not a new record

Hi,

 

I would like to trigger a flow only when the status value has changed in a SharePoint list. 

I do not want this to be triggered when a new record is submitted. Only when the status column has been updated

 

Thank you.

Hi @anilrambhajan 

You can use When an item or a file is modified trigger and Get changes for an item or a file (properties only) action, then to check whether the status value has been changed. If the result is true, continue the flow, if it is false, end the flow.

Assume an email is sent when the Status Value is updated.

Save and test the Flow.

Email will only be sent when the Status value is modified.

Hope the content above may help you.
