Identifying a modified share point item



I'm trying to check if a specific item in my share point list has been modified, so that the flow will start an approval.


I've tried to use the condition to compare: the moment the item was created x the moment the item has been modified. But it seems flow does not identify the change... 


Could anyone know how to work on that?


And which elements of an item can be identified when changed? i.e. only title, any item topic, attachment...

Re: Identifying a modified share point item

Flow cannot determine if there is a change in a SharePoint column - it only knows there ihas been a change in that particular item/row of data.  This really isn't a Flow issue, it is a SharePoint issue.


About the only way of determining if a column has changed is to store a copy of the data in a second column.  If the two are not the same, then that column has changed.  You'll need to kep the two columns in sync - after a column has changed update the "mirror" column.
