Create a trigger for SharePoint list columns

It would be nice to have a trigger if a certain column in a SharePoint list is modified. For example, if the column "Status" is modified, or if the column "Assigned To" is populated. So we don't have to use the trigger "When an item is created or modified", where you have to create a lot of workaround conditions just to make sure that the column that was updated is what you need. 

Status: Under Review

Hi all,


We understand the pain points expressed here, and we are currently investigating options in building granular flow triggers for item updates and column changes in SharePoint.


We respectfully ask for your continued patience on this topic for the remainder of this calendar year. We are committed to a viable solution for our customers worldwide, and will continue to post updates here as we solidify our plans (which will most likely be early next year). Again, thank you for your patience, and your feedback on Microsoft Flow integrations with SharePoint.

It should be possible to just trigger a flow when a specific field is changed in a sharepoint list

Our experience: Business Owner wants to send email (contains file properties and attachement) to other departments when file is created in SharePoint library. Currently, no custom properties are shown in the email, since file is first uploaded, then flow trigerrs and only then custom properties can be added by user. This feature request would solve above problem, since email would be sent only when custom properties are added and be ready to share with others.

This would be an amazing additional feature
