Sharepoint Flow email when changes are made to specific column



My company uses a Sharepoint list as a company wide roster. I'm trying to set up a flow that only triggers an email when a specific column is updated; what it was originally, and then what it was updated to. 

I know that Sharepoint alerts exist, the problem is that they trigger an email anytime anything is changed. Whereas, the departments that use this roster only need to know when the specific column that pertains to their department changes (for example; Training only needs to know when an employees training id updates, Workforce only needs to know when an employee's department changes, etc.) 




Thanks for any assistance!

You will have to use On Item Modified Trigger and then use Get Changes for an Item or a file. Then look for True false for the column you are interested in. If you find true, send notification.
