Flow runs when you did not want it to

I have found this to be an irregular issue.  I build flows based on schedules.  When I go into edit the flow, I do my edits and simply close.

 

I have found that the flow has been triggered and has started running when I did not want it to.  This is very dangerous as it is taking action whan it is not supposed too

 

Has anyone esle experienced the problem?

Hi @leyburn19 ,

 

The "Recurrence" trigger would always automatically run when it is firstly added to a flow when you save the flow, and it is the feature of this trigger but not an irregular issue.

 

Best regards,

Sorry,  but I find that is a questionable feature.  Creating a scheduled should not automatically run when created or modified.  If I want to do that to test the flow I use a Manual Button First

 

This feature archived 5000 records before I realised it was running.  Luckily I could recover but it was a waste of my time as it should not have happened until I wanted it to.

You might consider simply turning the Flow off - that way it will not run and you can still make and save edits.

Sorry,  but I find that is counter intuitive.  Why would a schedule flow run when created or modified when it is not the schedule it was given.
