Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

I have a similar problem, for now I will patch to 2 lists rather than one.

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

Having a similar issue, except mine doesn't work on certain file types?  It works fine with xlsx/docx/txt, but anything else its not picking up?

@MCCLabelFlow to clarify the flow triggers when xlsx/docx/text are created, but not other file types?

 

To investigate, we will need:

- The flow that ran or didn't run

- The timestamp + timezone in which a file was created but the flow did not trigger.

Eastern Standard Time.  These are files that are being copied from another directory.  We have another flow that this is working in, picking up files copied?

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

Hello Dblyth,

   I am still having issue. Flow is not trigerring sometime and sometime when i save the item 3 times (Since its modified it should trigger that flow but it only executes it twice not for the third instance.)

 

How can we solve these issues, this is very frustating. What Microsoft is selling is really not working.

I have submitted a support ticket to MS as there is definitely something going on witht he platform today. None of my Flows load.

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

Changes in quick succession can be batched, there is no guarantee that every single edit of an item will result in a distinct flow run. Sharepoint does this specifically to AVOID running multiple times when users change fields in succession. Also, the recurrence interval calculated based on your plans (premium vs O365/Free) can come into play, where Sharepoint will pick up changes a few minutes apart to the same item). 

 

@npokhrel123 I have an old Flow id of yours, but without any info about the exact times at which you made changes, Sharepoint & Flow cannot investigate anything. Please share timestamp (including timezone) when you made changes. 

 

@abpmr_entarc can you please share details about what you are seeing? That sounds entirely different than what this thread is about (SharePoint triggers not triggering for some changes).

Fair enough. Thank you for the heads-up.

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

This is a very aggravating issue. There must be a set of cases that apply for a flow to not work. We are using a very basic flow - when a file is added, send an email to a specific list of people. Half the time (or less) it works and half nothing ever shows in the logs. So whether it is file name restrictions, file type restrictions, frequency of the flow (even though we pay for a full flow license), or whatever the case might be, this system is far from working as advertised. It would be great if a list of all the conditional factors was available or just a confirmation from MS that this system doesn't work and shouldn't be relied on.

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

@MCCLabelFlow The Flow you shared with me above is using the filesystem trigger, correct?

 

Not to discount the bug, but it would explain why I've been unable to reproduce this with the the SharePoint trigger (which is what this thread is generally about). I can keep investigating your issue about the FS trigger not processing certain file types. 

 

@JD7 100% agree, and I have asked the SharePoint Product Managers to document the expected behaviors on their triggers -- how quickly they can be expected to fire, how/when changes may be batched together into a single flow run, etc.
