Sending an email after modifying an existing file in SharePoint Online document library

Hi all,

 

I was wondering if there is a work-around for sending out an email after modifying an existing file. I have heard that they removed "When an existing file is modified" trigger, and the replacement trigger, "When a file is created or modified,"  has been sending me duplicate emails in testing. I have a column in my SharePoint Online document library named 'share on date' and want that to be the only email that gets displayed once I modify that property. However, I will receive an email when I upload a file, and then after I modify the file as well which is really annoying. I probably have to work with conditions, but haven't found a solution for this problem.

 

This is a general layout of what I want to happen:

 

1. File is created - do nothing

2. Once the 'share on date' property has been modified - send one email via outlook with the modified date

 

This is my current problem:

 

1. File is created - sends an email without meta data from column property

2. Once the 'share on date' property has been modified - sends another email via outlook

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Sending an email after modifying an existing file in SharePoint Online document library

Welp. Looks like the issue is that I had multiple "test" flows activated, which were sending me multiple emails. If you are new to flow like I am, make sure you turn off other flows that do the same function.
