Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

Thanks,

 

Of the three, it looks like #3 was not working (it never did - we don't support it) - Was there case where #1 and #2 where not triggering a flow ?

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

"The issue is simple.  I constantly modified a SP list item, workflow doesn't fire upon modification as designed.  This happened in July/Aug timeframe on many list items.  The trigger not happening consistently is sadly a massive show stopper for Flow." @VFXPro @RajRa

 

This is the exact problem and probably the best explanation of it.  Even on the simplist of SharePoint lists, if a list item is modified the Flow trigger doesn't always recognize that it was modified.

Can you share the flow ID as well as the sharepoint site address with me. You can send me a private IM .

 

thanks

@RajRa

 

I know it currently isn't supported and I'm not really sure if this is the best place to suggest product improvements, but I feel that valuable Flow-SharePoint trigger that could potentially help solve some of these Item List Modification missfires is an If Conditional Trigger that looks for a certain value in a column and executes the Flow after this has happened.  Essentially skip the "When SharePoint List Item is Modified Trigger" and replace it with "When SharePoint List Item Column Equals _______".  Selections needed for this trigger might include: SharePoint List URL, Column Name, and the contents of the blank (number, word, or person) that will satisfy the statement and cause the Trigger to execute and start the Flow.

 

Could functionality like this be available soon?

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

@RajRa, you misunderstand.  #3 Was the Schedule - Recurrance trigger and it was never broken.  #2 was the one that was broken until the lookup columns were removed.

Re: Flow not Triggering (Sharepoint Modified)

Sadly, I don't have the site/list anymore since it was working 100% of the time. 😞

 

Issue Details

I had a FLOW designed to fire when a Yes/No column was modified using the Quick View  (ie in batch).  That might explain the uniqueness of them problem.

 

The SP item wasn't modified using the edit form.

..sorry, meant to say "NOT working 100%" of the time.

There's an option in the My Flows page, under the 3 dots menu, to Export as a Logic Apps template. I haven't tried it but it might do what you need

I'm getting the same issue now as well. It's a -very- simple list - 6 columns, and only 2 list items. Flow's are mostly not starting (maybe 1 in 5 or so). I'll try later to export it as a Logic App

It still doesn't appear to be 100% ok, but I've switched to Classic Experience for the SPO site and it's MUCH better - hope that helps someone while this gets fixed properly
