Created != Modified for new item created having attachments

I have created a flow using the trigger for sharepoint which runs when item is created or modified. In order to differentiate between created and modified item, i use the condition if Created=Modified. If it is a new item, I send a particular email, if it is a modified item, i send another email. This works fine if there are no attachments. But incase, there are attachments to an item that I create, then Created and Modified are not the same. Sometimes multiple emails are triggered when attachments are added. I found that this is beacuse there are few seconds difference in Created and Modified when attachments are added. 

How can I resolve this issue? This is a bug as there shouldn't be a difference even in seconds between Created and Modified if attachments are added.

Hi @AnonyMouse,


I can reproduce this issue on my side. When an item with an attachment is created, the Created time and the Modified time are not equal with one second difference.


I will help reproduce this issue on my side and back to you later once I got any updates.

Hi Mabel,


It need not be one second difference. For example, if you attach maybe 6 files, each of 10 mb, the difference in seconds will vary.

Also I tried to see if I can use the template "When item is modified send an email", but that triggers even for new items - which again is another bug


Did MS ever fix this?


Is a fix available on this?
