Flow get triggered on refreshing SharePoint list view

Not sure if this is a bug. I created a SharePoint List and customized the form using powerapps. The form has a Dropdown which comes from a choice column. I have set a flow to trigger on "OnChange" event of the dropdown . It works fine. However when the item is saved the flow gets trigerred again. I figured its not saving of the item rather the refreshing of list view , after saving item, that triggers the flow. When i refresh the list view using CTRL+F5, the flow gets triggered the number of times the list items in the list. I also noted that this happened when flow triggered by DropDown control but not from text control. I find this behavior unwanted. Tried to lookover the internet but could not find any posts related to this.


Can you please verify if this is a bug or am i doing something wrong.

Re: Flow get triggered on refreshing SharePoint list view

Hi @ankurag1981 ,


Could you share a screenshot of your Flow configuration?

I don't know which one of the triggers you use. As far as I know, Flow does not have a trigger to monitor whether the value of the specified field has changed.

Also where are you refreshing list views, SharePoint online portal or PowerApps.

I used When an item is created or modified as a test for the trigger. In SharePoint online portal, no matter how I refresh the list views or edit the current list views, there is no such issue.
