Trigger Condition for When a file is created or modified in a folder (Sharepoint )

Hi Everyone,

 

I've made the following Flow which post in Teams every time a News is posted or modified in a specific Sharepoint site. All working fine. But if I edit a News post per say 5 times in a row. The flow will pickup all these changes and post into teams also 5 times in a row. 
QUESTION: Is there a way I could avoid this using Trigger Conditions? 

I've tried a couple of things without success. Basically if I could make a condition to only post an update if it has past 1 hours from the last one would help already.

You could try putting the concurrency to 1 in the settings on the trigger, and then adding a delay in the beginning of your flow for an appropriate amount of minutes that the 5 triggers are occurring.  That way, only one flow can run at a time during that delay period.

Pat

I don't understand what u mean by "putting the concurrency to 1 in the settings on the trigger"

Hit the ellipsis in upper right of the trigger and choose settings, and then change it to look like below.  Then as your first action, add a delay action with an appropriate # of minutes, and then the rest of your flow.

Got it. Thank you. But I don't see how this is going to help my situation.

 

I would need the last run -> last modified to be able to achieve what I need and it seems there is no way to get info from a last run.

I was able to find a solution by adding the following condition;

The only problem is that the trigger goes off anyways. There is no way I could use the same condition as a function in the Trigger Condition. 😒
