When updating an element, all elements of a list are updated

Steps to replicate the error:

In the sharepoint site, create a custom list

In Microsoft Flow, create a flow to custom list

1.- I added the SharePoint trigger: When an element is created or modified

    a) Enter the information requested

2.- Add a new step

3.- Add SharePoint Action

4.- Choose: Update Item

    a) Enter the information requested

5.- Update the Title field by concatenating the Title and ID

6.- Save


Add two elements in the list, and you will notice that when an element is updated, all the other elements are updated as well, is that correct? I have only updated one item, but all the others are updated as well.

Hi @SPFxDeveloper ,


Could you share a screenshot of the Flow configuration?

Update item action will only update the corresponding item according to the Item id you filled, and will not actively update other items.

From your description, it seems that after you created two new items, Flow was triggered twice, so both items are updated.

This is in line with the expected result, because when a new item is created, Flow will be triggered and Update item action will be executed.

I don't know if my explanation is clear.


You could also add a Condition to determine if the current item is being updated or newly created.
