Send email when Sharepoint item is modified

I've created two flows - one when an item is created and the second when the item is modified.  However, I receive two email notifications when the item is created.  Without touching the created item, a second notification is sent saying that the item has been modified.  Why is this second email being generated?

Re: Send email when Sharepoint item is modified

Hi @jplazzaro,


I think the "When an item is modified" that you use is actually "When an item is created or modified".

So when you create a new item, both Flows will fire because they satisfy "an item is created".

There is no trigger like "When an item is modified" currently .

You could go to the Idea forum to vote for similar ideas, and maybe there will be such a trigger soon.
