Create a trigger for SharePoint list columns

It would be nice to have a trigger if a certain column in a SharePoint list is modified. For example, if the column "Status" is modified, or if the column "Assigned To" is populated. So we don't have to use the trigger "When an item is created or modified", where you have to create a lot of workaround conditions just to make sure that the column that was updated is what you need.

Thank you for your patience as we review this idea. We do understand the points made in all the comments, and the business justifications. I may reach out to some of you to discuss further, and look foward to exploring options with you!


Thank you again,

@KTP  I'd definitely look at the way that Pieter_Veenstra is suggesting. I haven't gone through and modified my stuff yet based on his post but I intend to give it a shot.  It should easily avoid the double-run of the flow due to the "Update Item" action at the end of the flow in what I described.  But to answer your question. Here's a screenshot of the action:Capture.PNG


You can see in this that you are setting the "Old[Columns]" to the value of the "[Columns]" and all the other "[Columns]" to themselves so that they maintain their value.

I hope this is coming soon, I have some situations where it will solve them.

Please implement this! We have immediate need for this functionality in Flow!
