Track changes to a cell in excel spreadsheet

Hi Everyone,

 

I am looking to set up am Excel Online spreadsheet with columns which are only edited by specific users.

 

Is there a way of using Power Automate to send an email to my inbox every time a change is made to a cell. The email will need to include the changes that were made.

 

Looking for any assistance with this.

 

Many Thanks,

Dhani

@Dhani it's not possible to do this yet but there is a UserVoice request for it at https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Ideas/Triggering-a-flow-when-a-change-is-made-in-...

Additionally, even if you could do this you wouldn't be able to get what had changed because the change would have been made before the flow triggered. There's no "State" action to get the previous value as well as the new value.
