Infinite Issue with Flow - need some help

Hi.... i believe im close but i need to accomplish updating a Date field with today's day pending the change of another field.  But im getting a Infinite Warning error......  im not sure if that is necessarily a bad thing as it is not a error but a warning.



- Audit Status (Pass/Fail) is a choice field.  Datacardvalue19

- Audit Date is a date field that should autopopulate with TODAY's date when the Audit Status changes.


I created a hidden field in a PowerApp for the list/form called "runtheflow".  The Default code for the datacard is If(SharePointForm1.DisplayMode=DisplayMode.Edit && DataCardValue19.Selected.Value <> ThisItem.'Audit Status (PASS / FAIL)'.Value,"yes","no")  this works!!!!


So i then go back to the flow and per the Compose, i constructed this code: @equals(triggerBody()?['runtheflow'],'yes') and this is set in the "When an item is created or modified" >settings>Trigger Condition........  Still getting the infinite error.....

then i dont know what to set the Audit Date field in the Update item to TODAY......



what am i missing here??? what do i need to add or update?

Hi @cnorris135 ,


This is not an error. It is just a warning in the flow. It is warning you to ensure you have taken the infinite trigger possibility into consideration.


As long as multiple flows are not being triggered, you are good.
