Update SharePoint item is affecting ALL items

I have a basic flow using the 'When an item or file is Modified' in SharePoint

All it does is updates a column with the word True, if the column is not already True, when the item is edited. It should only affect the record that is being edited but it updates the entire list.

Here is the list

Here is the only field being updated

And here is the resulting list

It fills the whole 'Currently Assigned' column with trues, strangely enough it seems to miss one out for some reason; it wasn't the one I was editing.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Hello @AlnessDev 

Your flow is correct! Could you check again that it's updating all the items? Are you using the grid view to modify the items?

Anyway, you could improve your flow, and add a trigger condition, so it is only executed if the condition is true:

Hope it helps!

I had used grid view to duplicate the tasks, there must have been something in the background that made the flow think they were all the same. I created 3 separate tasks and the flow now works. Thanks!
