How to create a flow that automatically sends an email whenever someone updates an excel sheet

Hello, I'm trying to create an automatic flow that would trigger an email whenever someone modified a specific excel sheet. Whenever I try to make this flow, however, it changes it from automate to instant and then requires a person to manually start the flow. How do i go about automating this?

 

Thanks!

Hi @dmnwc 

 

Excel doesn't provide a trigger for when something is changed, like SharePoint for example.

 

You need to trigger it either manually or scheduled and check if there are any changes like you mention.
