Triggering Flow on SharePoint Content Type

Is there any way to trigger a Flow when an item is created or modified for a particular content type? I would like to set a field (Business Partner name) in different lists. Field name is same in all lists as it's created as a site column. However, I can't find a way to set this field without creating a separate Flow for each list.

Re: Triggering Flow on SharePoint Content Type

Currently Flow does not support attaching a Flow to a content type (as you can with SharePoint Designer Reusable 2010 style workflow).

 

You may want to make this suggestion here if it has not already been made.

Re: Triggering Flow on SharePoint Content Type

Hi @ SinghG,

 

 

The trigger when an  item is created or modified for a particular content type is not supported in

Microsoft Flow currently, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

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

You can, but its a bit of a hack and could break if updates are rolled out for Flow. I don’t have the link handy but the how-to does show up in google search results.
