Is it possible to add a trigger that initiates the flow when a website content changes?
Could you please explain a bit for the website content changes?
If the website has RSS feeds, then we could monitor the RSS changes under Microsoft Flow:
See the RSS connector documentation:
The available templates:
For other parts, check to see if the HTTP action could achieve your needs:
Hi, this doesn't really answer the question.
There are many sites which don't have RSS feeds, otherwise it would be simple and the HTTP action just allows you to do an action based on a poll of a site.
The challenge is how do you determine if the site has changed in the period since the last poll, I also would like to do this so that I can check if there is new news on a site which is just plain HTML with no RSS feed or social media links.
[Do not try to save to Excel since the cell character limits will likely trim the HTTP content body at the ~37k limit]
To add to what I mentioned above, you might want to also copy the contents of the prior HTTP content body to another file so you can use a file comparison program to look at the differences. This will help you understand whether the website you are trying to monitor is built in such a way as to make checking site updates impossible without complex parsing.
