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,

Would be great if this worked for the Common Data Service, too. I currently have this need for Dynamics 365 GCC.

must have!


when will it come out?

Level: Power Up

absoluty must have. We need this function! 

Level: Powered On

We had this function in SharePoint Designer 2010.  I've been told not to use SPD 2010 but it's so much better.  I was able to update a specific field instead of the entire item and check if a field changed by simply puting in a Wait function like:  Wait for FieldA to not equal Current:FieldA.  If I understand it right, this would compare the field value in the data to the field value that was just entered.  Maybe my logic is flawed here but that's what it seemed like to me.

And what's with removing great functions everytime a new version comes out?

For now, search youtube for videos on how to use "Trigger Conditions".  It's not as good as SPD 2010, but if used correctly, it won't trigger all of your flows every time anything in the item is changed.

Here's a good video that I found on YouTube about Trigger Conditions
