SharePoint Conditional trigger

It would be very powerfull to have a trigger that starts conditionally.

 

For example:

I don't want a Flow to always trigger when an item is modified. Only when a specific condition is met, like Status = Completed

I can now do that by using the When an existing item is modified trigger and setting a condition after the trigger, but it would be nicer that you can configure your condition within the trigger.

You can already set Trigger Conditions on Flows:

https://www.timlinenterprises.com/microsoft-power-automate-flow-trigger-conditions/

 

All of the Trigger Conditions must evaluate to True or the Flow will not start.

 

I also found this article useful for working out how to define the Trigger Conditions:
