(Flow, SharePoint, PowerApp) Get the last enter value for each unique in child SharePoint list from parent SharePoint list

Hi All,

Background Context:-

I made an tools checkout-check-in system using QR code in PowerApp. All the tools check-out, check-in record is stored in Parent SharePoint list. In PowerApp, due to 2000 rows delegation limit, I am not able to complex formula such lookup(Max(Sortbycolum(Filter="XXXXXX"))) to check for last entered value for XXXX tool when the list grow >2000 rows.


Therefore i thought to create a child SharePoint list which only shows last entered value for that unique item.

Need help with.

As a newbie with Flow I am stuck on how to create a flow to automatically update child SharePoint that when a new item is added to parent SharePoint.

I am Have been doing research over google from last one week, but no luck for me. Please help or guide any starting step.
