Sharepoint Trigger when an item is modified in a list

 

Hi, 

 

I see on this URL: 
https://us.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/shared_sharepointonline/sharepoint/

There is a template for a trigger: When an item in SharePoint list is modified.

And when I try to use it, I see the trigger (advanced mode)

Yet if I try to start with a blank canvas, and build a flow without starting with a Template this trigger cannot be found anywhere...  search results:

The only trigger is for when an item is created or modified.  I need a trigger for when an item is modified only.  I know that I can delete the send email action from the template, but this is strange that it is not available on the list when you search for it.

 

Makes me wonder what other triggers are not showing in a search?

Re: Sharepoint Trigger when an item is modified in a list

Hi @Crockerfeller,

 

I am afraid that "When an existing item is modified" that you see here is "When an item is created or modified" that you can search for.

The different names are shown here because when the template was created, the creator renamed the trigger to the current one.

I used this template to test, and confirmed that the trigger is “When an item is created or modified”. When I create a new item in the list, Flow also triggers normally.

The Trigger and action used in the template are definitely searchable and usable, but they may be renamed in the template, which is more suitable for scenario.

Microsoft Flow does not support a trigger for when an item is modified only currently.

If you would like to the feature within Microsoft flow, you could vote for the similar ideal in the forum below:

Also you could post your idea in the Flow Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.
