Send only one notification when an Excel file is modified

Hello community, 


I created a simple Flow process to send an email when an excel file is modified. The problem is that it sends an email for every cell modification... and I would like to receive only one notification when a user modifies the entire file. Is it possible to create a rule for that?


Thanks for your help!

Re: Send only one notification when an Excel file is modified

Hi @likoppe,


The flow with trigger "When a file is modified" would fire when the file is modified, I afraid that you have saved the excel file for every cell modifications so the flow would fire for cell modification.


Please save the excel file when you want the flow runs when you modify the excel file, also make sure the excel file wouldn't been automatically saved.


Also you could take a try to copy the excel file with the save name out of the folder and then modify it, when you done then replace the original one.


Best regards,
