How can compose in FLOW when created by is equal to Modified by

Hello Everyone,

 

How can compose in FLOW when created by is equal to Modified by then when they are equal my condition will run.  Im trying to use DO UNTIL but seems whatever the condition is it becomes TRUE.  or is there another approach for this scenario?

 

Thanks!

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.

Hi @IC ,

 

Could you share more details about your needs?

If the trigger you are using is When an item is created, Created by is definitely the same as Modified by.

You could try replacing the trigger with When an item is created or modified and then doing a similar test.

Thanks for the reply (both of you)

 

currently, testing this way - but no matter what the condition the Do until still resulted to true.

what I need to achieve on this condition is:  When the created by is equal to modified by, do this (whatever the condition is) my end goal with Do until is that while the condition is not met do-until but the moment the condition is met then run the condition and stop the flow.

 

Ok, I will try to use When an item is created or modified and test I will give the findings.

Using Created by or Modifed by I have this run history just for one entry and still running and not stopping when my condition is Created by is equal to modified by

My impression in using Do until:  Created by is equal to Modified by the system will keep on sending email then when this is true it will stop sending email.

Hi @IC ,

 

In fact, I am still confused about your needs.

 

In general, we determine whether the current item is changed or newly created, only need to judge Created and Modified.

If they are equal, this is a newly created item; if they are not equal, the item is changed.

At this time, Modified by is the user who currently changes this item.

Modified by and Created By may be equal when the item is changed, and the user may be the same person.

Hi @v-bacao-msft thanks for your reply really appreciate it.

 

I have a document library and I want to put a condition where as when the user uploaded the file or create new file then the Approval process will kick in however I want to put a condition when the approval process take effect the user as and when edited the file or document the approval process stops and rejects as the result.  or another approach would be if the approval process take place the file cannot be edited by user.  I can do this security filtering by sharepoint designer but I couldn't apply it here in FLOW.  Thanks!
