SharePoint list item modified not triggering flow

Hi there!

I have a flow setup for handling leave requests where the users add an item to a SharePoint list to trigger the flow.

If the user decides to modify their leave request in the list, a modified version of the flow will run.

My problem is that when an item is modified the flow never seems to be triggered.

 

I have tried to use this suggestion, but it seems that nothing happens.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Re: SharePoint list item modified not triggering flow

Hi @Bobs,

 

Does the trigger When an item is created or modified not work when the item is modified?

Have you got this issue before?

I have made a test by creating a flow with the trigger when an item is created or modified. However, it works fine whenever an item is created or modified. The issue cannot be reproduced on my side.

Could you try to recreate the flow to see if it will work?

If you are still having the issue, please feel free post back. 

 

Best regards,

Re: SharePoint list item modified not triggering flow

Thanks for your reply.

Does the trigger 'When an item is created or modified' not work when the item is modified?

Yes, that is exactly my problem. The trigger works fine when a new item is created.

 

Have you got this issue before?

No, this is the first time I am using this trigger.

 

Could you try to recreate the flow to see if it will work?

Yes, I will try to recreate the top part of the flow.

 

To make your trigger work did you set anything special in the trigger settings or on the SharePoint list?
