Add When an Existing Item is modified trigger to flow

Hello guys,

 

in the following picture you can see my actual flow. I have tried several methods but cant achieve my goal. I want to add the When an existing item is modified trigger to my flow, cause i want to change the request number manually, update the item and than send out a new mail with the updated request number. The When an existing item is modified trigger triggers itself without doing anything. I have no time to modify my actual item manually. How can i solve this problem ? Flow.jpg

Re: Add When an Existing Item is modified trigger to flow

Hi Hamudi,

 

I'm not sure that I have fully understood your issue. You said that you do not want to manually update the list item, may I know how did you want to update the item? I noticed that you also said that you "want to change the request number manually, update the item and than send out a new mail with the updated request number", which is quite confusing. Would you please help to explain more about your requirement?

 

Sorry for the inconvience.

 

Regards,

Mona

Re: Add When an Existing Item is modified trigger to flow

Hello Mona,

 

i will do it for sure. In my company we have a release process for each request. First of all the requester will upload the request. After this step, the request management will get a decision mail in wich they can decide whether the request will be accepted or not. If the request gets denied, then update the request status and send an e-mail back to the requester. If the request is accepted, then also update the request status and send an e-mail to the next station/person. Now this person has to give the request a special number, but this number has to be typed in manually. After editing, the request/item shall be updated. The request number then shall be transmitted to the last person/station of this process via mail. I would like to upload 2 pictures to show you the process but its not working. This flow shall work with Sharepoint lists. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sleKZvt1QmI its something like this but with a manual editing later on. The flow should work for every request, cause sometimes we get 35-50 at one moment and sometimes hroughout the month. If you need a view over the sharepoint view, i could mail you screenshots of the actual sharepoint, cause the editing method of this site is horrible.  

Thank you your willigness to help.

Best regards

Hamudi
