Trigger an flow that sends an email when an update is made to a specific field in a SharePoint list

Hey Everyone,

 

I am trying to fire off an email when a Tracking Number is added to a current record in a Sharepoint list. When the record is created, tracking info isn't available. Later, that info is put into the record. I have tried several setups in Power Automate, but I'm unable to get this to work. Here is my current flow.

So when an item is created or modified in the list, ONLY the Tracking Number field, it should Get Items. I am missing the Filter Query, it isn't giving me the correct options for the "Tracking Number" text field. The condition should be IF Tracking Number is True (has new info in the field) send an email. I want Get Items to only pull the new entry that was just added to the Tracking Number field.

 

I hope I'm explaining this correctly, please let me know what other info you need and I appreciate all the help!

See my example below.  You want to use a Get changes for an item or file action rather than a Get items action.

Can you tell me what column is common between the two lists?  In other words, how will you find the record that you want in the list that you reference in your Get items action?

It's a single list, the column is Tracking Number. It's a basic text column. I want to send an email when that column is updated.
