Timestamp when changing a column from any other value to a specific value

I found the following guide that was close to what I was hoping to accomplish:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Is-there-any-way-to-do-a-timestamp/td-p/38440

 

Here's two examples of how this works in my case:

  1. Item 1 is modified
    • Status is changed from “Trial Entered” to “Tooling Verification”
    • A timestamp is created and entered into the “ToolVerTimestamp” column
  2. Item 1 is modified again
    • Status is “Tooling Verification” and does not change, but another column is modified
    • A timestamp is created and overwrites the previous one in the “ToolVerTimestamp” column

The first example works great until someone modifies the item again, then the original timestamp is replaced. Is it possible to create a timestamp only when the column is changed from "x" to "y"?

I was able to get the timestamps to work correctly by adding a second condition that is equal to null. This solved my problem.

Hi @lxjensen ,

 

Do you want to update item on specific item is modified?

I am afraid that it might not possible to be achieved currently.

I have seen a similar request at here:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Trigger-flow-When-Item-is-Modified-only/idi-p/237883?...

Please feel free vote the idea so that it will be released in future releases.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

I'm really surprised that's not already an option, I was hoping I just missed something. Definitely voting for that!
