Simple Flow - Copy items from one contact list to another

I'm having a real hard time achiving this. I have two contact lists 
 
 
Site Contact List A
Site Contact List B
 
I want to enter a contact on site A and it will copy to Site B. Then if anything gets edited on a contact on Site Contact List A it will updated the ones on B (not make another one) i've got it to do the copy but every time i edit one nothing happending but it will create another one.. so then i end upo with multiples of the same contact and dont want that. Can anyone assist 🙂 
 
Thank You.

Hi @rdalrymple,

 

Can you please post screenshots of your Flow steps so we can try to re-create your scenario?

Thanks.

What happends is it creates the item with no problem but if you edit.. it makes dubplicate 

Hi @rdalrymple,

 

My assumption will be that you will need to add a condition to check if the Contact already exists in Site Contact List B before proceeding with the action to either create a new contact or update the existing one. I will try to create your requirements on my end and see if I can come up with a working condition.

Thank You

@Anonymous that's a great post. I will read it again to follow the example. I had the same idea as the post in which a unique identifier can be set up to make it easier when updating an entry in the main list. Thanks for that post.
