Referring to this post.
Can you create a switch button that control the flow from triggering itself when the flow modifies the list it is working on.
Any news or workaround?
Right now the only possible workaround is to set up a condition that when the flow trigger itself it will exit the flow. I usally setup some hidden boolean column to manage that.
The flow always run twice, but it works.
I ended up making a FlowControl list, then I created a FlowControl-Flow that maintains tasks in this list to minimize the amount of flows watching the document library. This seems like a needless and ugly hack, but I have found no other solution.
What about flow management? perhaps 'update flow state' can disable itself when triggered and re-enable it (with run after all outcomes;) ? I have not been able to explore flow-management because it is in violation with my environments data-loss-policy for some reason, but his feels a bit like a hack as well.
The triggers that monitor locations that it does work on will burn through free flow runs pretty quickly, not really a financial benefit to develop functionality to avoid that is there? 😕
