Want flow to trigger when one column is modified in the document library

Hi Everyone,


As the title suggests, I would like to figure out how to trigger this flow every time a column in the document library is edited. I ONLY want the flow to trigger when the column is modified. The plan is to create an approval flow where an email will be sent to a manager every time someone inputs a date in the "Transaction" column. Below is an example of what I have been working with, I made the condition "Legal date" is not equal to "LD1" (which is a seperate but identical column that I hide). This method works, but I would really like to have this flow trigger only when the one column is modified.


Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

As far as I know, this is not an "out of the box" Flow feature.

But, we are very lucky to have community members like @ScottShearer THis post from him is an excellent workaround.

Hope this helps
