SharePoint Flow ONLY triggers in test mode

Trigger is new item created in SharePoint. Simple, works great if I'm in test mode. Leave test mode, nothing happens. Popped in and out of test mode a dozen times, it simply does not trigger if not in test mode.


Am I missing something obvious here? Is there a different timeframe when not in test mode? Maybe it only checks once per 15 minutes, per hour, per day?

Hi @bdc604 ,

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

I have made a test on my side with the trigger 'When an item is created'.

However It doesn't has the issue you have mentioned.

The flow can be triggered when I create an item in the SP list.


And the flow run frequency is depend on the plan you have used.

Please take a reference to the below link:
