sharepoint

Need a trigger for when a specific field is changed in a list. For example - when a column used for a satus field is updated, I would like to creat a flow for items to occur after the status of one item in a SharePoint list is updated.

Re: sharepoint

Hi @ BRR,

 

 

Do you want to trigger a flow when a specific field is changed in a sharepoint list?

 

Microsoft flow support the trigger "when an item is created or modified" currently,the trigger "when a specific field is changed" is not supported in microsoft flow currently,

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

As an alternative way, you could take a try to create a Yes/No type column "status is updated" in your sharepoint list to record if the "status" column is updated, the default value of "status is updated"column is no.

If someone update the item, and the "status" column is updated, the user should update the "status is updated" to yes,

If someone update the item, and the "status" column isn't updated, the user should keep the "status is updated" to no.

 

 

And you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

Note:

If the status is updated, do some action you want to do inside the if yes branch of the Condtion.

If the status isn't updated, do nothing.

When the status is updated, the flow would run successfully as below:
