SharePoint information panel is triggering flow for each metadata modification

We are using SharePoint Online with the Document Libraries in modern experience. In the modern experience you can see the information panel. In the information panel you can modify the document metadata. Foreach metadata column I change the flow is triggered. 

 

Is it possible that the information panel will show some button "Save". So you can modify once all the metadata columns, and when you finished you can click on "Save". From this point the flow will be triggered once.

Re: SharePoint information panel is triggering flow for each metadata modification

Hi @dreamsat ,

 

Please take a try with the Edit all if you want to modify all the metadata columns for one time and the flow would be triggered only one time.

 

Best regards,

Re: SharePoint information panel is triggering flow for each metadata modification

This is more of a training issue than anything you can solve.  If you look in your screenshot you will see an 'Edit all' link just above the properties.  If a user clicks on the individual properties to edit them then each property will launch a modification.  But if they click Edit All it will open an Panel where they can do the edits.  That Panel has a Save button.  I don't think there is any way to disable the individual property edits other than telling people not to do it that way if they are going to change multiple pieces of metadata.
