When an item or a file is modified trigger not working.

I have a couple of flows that perform tasks bases on if a column on a SharePoint list item has changed or not. However, the flow wont run when I use the trigger "When an item or a file is modified". For it to work, I have to use the trigger "When an item or a file is created or modified". This causes an issue where the flow triggers and fails when ever an item is created, whereas I only want it to trigger when it is modified. 

 

My troubleshooting led me to believe that my list is somehow bugged. I even tried to make the simplest flow that sends me an email whenever an item is modified, but the flow still wont trigger. I have tried the solutions mentioned in multiple threads here on this forum, but nothing works for me. Is there some way I can modify my list or trigger for it to work?

 

BR,

Adrian

Hi @Adee,

 

The trigger could work properly on my side:

 How do you structure the Flow? Create it from a template or blank?

If you created it from a template, please try to create it from blank.

If you not, please check the connection of SharePoint connector, check if the connection is valid, and recreate a new connection.

My flow suddenly stopped working. I agreed the "When an item or a file is modified" trigger is not working. My connections are fine. Any help/info is appreciated.
