When a new Item is created and when an existing item is modified.

Good day,

 

I have 2 work flow. 

 

1) When a new item is created send an approval email.

 

2) When an existing item is modified, send an email.

 

Strange thing about this is that I am receiving 2 emails of the same email, 1 for approval, 1 is for notificating me that a new item has been modified. This is strange as this is a new item and not an existing item.

 

Is this a bug or is this suppose to work this way. 

 

Do advice 🙂

Hi @dereklin,

 

It is the way how the "when an existing item is modified" trigger would work.

When a new item is created, it will acutally have effects on both of the triggers you mentioned.

We could add a condition under the "When an existing item is modified" flow, check if the item is already exists, and if yes, send the email, if no, do nothing.

Please take a note that the value specified under the Condition should be unique value under the SharePoint list, otherwise, this flow might trigger multiple Email notifications.

Hi,

I was able to use this workflow but it only allows me to modify the Sharepoint list once. The next time I try to modify the SharePoint list it wont trigger.
