Re: Update item in ms flow still looping

Hi @Erekle ,

 

Could you please share more details about the bug that you mentioned?

Could you please share the screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

Do you have a trigger "When an item is created or modified" and an "Update item" action in your flow?

If yes, please add a "ModifiedByFlow" column with Yes/No type in the sharepoint list, and set the default value of "ModifiedByFlow" column to No.

Make sure:

1.Everytime modify an item in the sharepoint manually, keep the "ModifiedByFlow" column to No.

2.When use "Update item" action, set the "ModifiedByFlow" column to No Yes.

 

Then you could add a Condition under the trigger "When an item is created or modified" to check if the "ModifiedByFlow" column value is equal to false, and you could add actions in the If yes branch of the Condition, leave the If no branch of the Condition blank.

 

Best regards,
