Modified trigger should give previous values for fields changed

When triggering a Flow on the modification of a list item then it should be possile to get the current and previous values of the fields that were changed. 

 

Status: Under Review

We are looking into this item now and we hope to use versioning as previous values will be retained by SharePoint for a finite period of time as it's configured to do so when you use versioning. For now, as a workaround, if you are familiar with the REST APIs, you could enable versioning in the list or the library and then use 'Send HTTP Request to SharePoint' to get the current and previous values of the fields that were changed. 

 

Thanks,

Chaks

@avt,

 

I agree that there is a workaround possible, but that doesn't mean that it's a greta workaround. In my opinion a Flow should only include steps that logically make sense. This should exclude workarounds for technical reasons. In the long run there needs to be an easy way to accomplish this.

True.

Something like get specific/previous version of shp item and when specific collumn was modified would be really helpfull.

why on earth flow doesnt have what the sharepoint designer workflows had as default i dont know why! It would make my life so much easier and wasted time looking for an alternative method.
