Limiting Flow Run when Extracting Folder based on New File



I have a working flow that when a new file is created with a certain content type (folder content type) it extracts a zip file into it. Works great. The problem is that it actually runs 40 flows on that one successful run, since they consider the extracted files as "new files." 


Is there a way around this?

Re: Limiting Flow Run when Extracting Folder based on New File

Hi jfedorowicz,

Accroding to your discription, you want to extract a file to a folder when the folder is created,right?

I suggest you to add a condition action before the Extract Folder action.

Otherwise,the flow will in the loop state.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference:

Here, I set the Folder Name as A, you should enter the folder name of yours.



Best Regards,
