Workflow email keeps sending duplicates, caught in a a loop.

I have an approval process to complete, this is the second-half of the process (the first part works fine). The problem I am having is that when my flow reaches the end of the process, it sees an item has been updated and runs the whole flow again as that is what triggers it. This results in a loop of duplicate emails being sent. What can I do to fix this?

Hi @scootsie 


You can create a column in the SP list and set some value to it to identify that the flow should not trigger if the column value is set to that value. And then you can use the trigger conditions as shown in this post here to configure a trigger condition in the flow that it runs only when that particular column value states that the process is completed. 


Hope this Helps!
