Sharepoint list column trigger

I want to be able to trigger my flow based on one specific column in my list.  For example, I have an existing row but if that speficic column have a change, it will trigger the flow. The other columns, no matter what modifciation is done, there will be NO trigger except that one.  

 

Thanks for your help.

The trigger isn't designed to work when only one specific column changes.  Any change to a  list item will trigger the Flow.  You can then examine the values in the record to decide wehther to continue or not.  But I don't see how you would identify that one specifc column changed.

How do I examine the values of the column in the list in order for me to continue with the flow?

The trigger itself should give you most if not all the columns as dyanmic content.  you should be able to find the field you want there.  The trick will be figuring out which one changed since you won't have access to previous values.

I only want one specific column changes to trigger the workflow.  Anyway to do that?

 

I was thinking I start with:

1) When an item is created or modified

2) Get Items   (Use ODATA filter query - but I cannot find documentations on how to read the last modification row with that specific column field)
