disable FLOW to make mass update to a list

Hi All,

I have a list with about 50 items, and there is a FLOW associated with the list.  I want to make a mass update to the list, but I don't want FLOW to send the alerts when I turn FLOW back on.

 

I turned the FLOW off, but I know in the past whn I turned the FLOW back on it sent all updated alerts.

 

Is this possible?

 

TIA,

Joe

Re: disable FLOW to make mass update to a list

@joef 

The answer to your question depends on your Flow and the trigger you are using.  I assume that you are referring to a SharePoint list.  If you are using a When an item (or file) is created or modified trigger, you should be OK but you'll want to wait 5 to 10 minutes after the last update to turn the Flow back on.  If you're using something like a Recurrence trigger, then you may have issues.  If you post a screen shot of your Flow I can provide a more definitive answer.

Yes I am using the SharePoint trigger when an item is added or modified.  

 

I will give it the weekend before turning it back on 🙂

 

Thanks,

Joe
