Filtering my flow based on user

I want to have a Flow that will notify me (via email is fine) if a file is created or modified by other users from a sharepoint library. I want it to be specific to certain folders in the sharepoint. And I do not want to be notified if I am the one making the modifications. Only when someone else is adding or changing files. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Also, would like to have it so that I am only notified when a file is actually modified, not just opened and closed, even if saved.

 

I created one and it works, but I get emails each time I work on a file or add a file. I don't need to know when I added or changed files, only when someone else did.

Re: Filtering my flow based on user

@CSchramm 

Have you considered simply creating a SharePoint alert for yourself on the library or folder(s).  You can create an alert so that you are notified only when someone else changes a document - no Flow required 🙂

 

To eliminate emails for changes that you have made, have a condition that checks the modified by email against your email and take action as appropriate.
