When an Item is Modified SharePoint trigger Only available when From SharePoint list interface

 

If you select "Create a Flow" from a SharePoint list, one of the Triggers available is "When an item is modified".

The "When an Item is Created or Modified" is not available.

This trigger is not available if you start the Flow creation process from within Flow - only the When an item is created or modified trigger is available.

Shouldn't both triggers be available regardless of how the Flow creation process is started?

Re: When an Item is Modified SharePoint trigger Only available when From SharePoint list interface

Hi @ScottShearer,

 

According to your description, I create a flow from the SharePoint site using the template When an existing list item is modified, complete a custom action.

 

Then create another flow from the flow site with the trigger When an item is created or modified.

 

Both the flow work when I create a new item or modify an existing item.

There are some updates on SharePoint triggers. Before we did have the trigger When an item is modified, but it was removed after the updates and now the available trigger is “When an item is created or modified”.

 

Please check this doc for more details about SharePoint triggers and actions:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/

 

 

Best regards,

@v-yamao-msft- Thanks for the reply.  My real point is that it is inconsistent.  The same trigger should be available whether you start a Flow from scratch or if you start it from the SharePoint modern interface.
