Create item from list 1 to list 2 and update if needed

Hello I'm new to flow and I have 2 lists


List Projects



When I add an item to list Projectss  with the location field as "NCSA" I would like for it to automatically create item to list NCSA only if it has location as NCSA. If it doesn't then I want it to ignore it.


I also want the item in list B to update everytime a change is made in list A. Please help step by step how to make this flow and provide how it looks if possible. This is what I have so far. Thank you!

Your trigger is correct.

Click on the ... and then Settings for the Trigger and set a condition action

This will make sure the flow only runs when that value is = NCSA.


Add a condition that compares Created and Modified - if they match then it is a new item and you should create a item in List B.


If they do not match then you need to query List B for the Item's ID and then do an update item.


Your flow will look something like this (The Update item will end up in a apply to each loop):

On the NCSA List make sure you have a column such as ProjectID that is populated with the ID of the Project to ensure you know what relates to what.


Then on the "Get Items" action you would query the NCSA List with the ODATA Filter query like this:


ProjectID eq '@{triggerBody()?['ID']}'

It doesn't work. I only want it to update the NCSA ones from list Projects as wella as create items into list NCSA everytime someone adds an item to list projects selecting NCSA as the area.
