Updating a List Date Field whenever a Person field is changed

Somewhat inexperienced flow user here, moving from basic workflow design in SPD.

 

I am attempting to create a flow that updates a date field with the current date whenever a Person field is changed.  I've done some reading in this forum and other googling attempts and it seems that using Switch is part of my solution, but I cannot figure out how to test for the person field conditions.  The person field should trigger an action. The person field could be blank, or it could contain a value that would also trigger an action if it's changed.

 

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

create a extra field on your list called OldPerson.

 

In your flow check to see if your Person Field equals OldPerson. If it does the field has not changed, if it doesnt update OldPerson with your Person Field.

Re: Updating a List Date Field whenever a Person field is changed

 

Hi @Jwlehman ,

 

As far as I know, what we can achieve now is to trigger Flow when the value of the specified column is equal to the specified value.

However, it does not support to monitor changes in the specified field values and trigger Flow.

For example, I have a person field named User, and it doesn't allow multiple selections. Then my configuration in the trigger condition is as follows:
