Need to stop a flow from firing if the item in SP is modified by someone other than the creater

I have a flow in SharePoint that when the creator makes a new entry in the list one of two emails are sent depending on the entry. That works fine. The next step in our workflow is that another person goes in and updates the item in the list. However, this triggers the first flow. So, I need to have a condition that says, if the person modifying the list item isn't the creator don't send the email. Ideas, please...

Re: Need to stop a flow from firing if the item in SP is modified by someone other than the creater

Hi @ AmyBabinchak,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

 

You could add a condition under the trigger to check if the item's "created by" is the same as the item's "modified by".

You could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

When an item is modified by the creator, the flow would run successfully as below and would send the email:

When an item is modified by the another user and not the creator, the flow would run successfully as below and wouldn't send the email:

How do I add photos here? I can share what I'm doing. I had the same idea on the creator = modifier condition but I've got another layer in there and I'm not sure not how to manage that. Happy to show you where I'm stuck once I can figure out how to paste it into here.

@AmyBabinchakin the Rich Text editor you should see an option

Which I just used to insert that snippet now.

You cannot copy & paste an image (eg. a screen clipping) directly, but need to save it first, then upload it or drag&drop to the canvas. If you don't see the Photos option in the menu, try another browser maybe?
