Approval email on item edit

Is there a way to send approval email on any item when edited in a list. I am able to send approval email when a new item is added but i am facing an issue or rather a defect in flow that the approval is not send when a user has edited the form after he added the entry. This might be confusing. But let me explain.


My sharepoint list contains three section:


1. AWS Services

2. Google Cloud

3. MS Azure


I have setup a flow so that the approval email is sent to individual approver based on what the user has selected. So what happens sometimes is that the user at the first time selects only "AWS Services" and submits the form. But what if he wants to select the google cloud services as well. In this case the whole concept of "triggering a approval when a new item is added" fails. How to overcome this problem?


Any ideas or suggestions?

Re: Approval email on item edit

Hi @Anonymous,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Could you please share a bit more about your SharePoin list?


I suppose that you add a "When an item is created" trigger of SharePoint connector as the trigger of your flow, is it true? If you want to send an approval email when a user edited the item in SharePoint list, please consider take a try to modify the "When an item is created" trigger into the "When an item is created or modified" trigger within your flow:15.JPG




More details about the "When an item is created or modified" trigger of SharePoint connector, please check the following article:

The "When an item is created or modified" trigger
