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.

 

Thanks,

Chakkaradeep (Chaks)

Hey folks -

 

Thank you for the responses.

I am following up with my team to see if we can add a trigger that allows you to trigger a flow off of a mailbox (irrespective of whether a given user is following / not following that mailbox.)

 

Stay tuned.

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

Today this can be accomplished by using multiple flows pointing at the same business logic via an HTTP trigger. So for example:

 

Flow 1 with Trigger 1 and HTTP action

Flow 2 with Trigger 2 and HTTP action

Flow 3 with Trigger 3 and HTTP action

Flow 4 with HTTP trigger and your actions

 

This requires n+1 flows (where n is the number of triggers) but enables you to accomplish the scenario. Thanks!

The recommended way to do this is to use approval flows. These can receive input from users and then proceed based on the selected input.

We are looking at this. Thank you!

This is a great suggestion - we are trying to identify a way to safely run regex in Flow.

Thank you for the suggestion. Today, we already support running in user context when there is a user present. For example, if I select a file in SharePoint and start a workflow on that file, that workflow can run in either my context, or the context set up by the author of the flow (as decided by the author). This is possible because we have the user's AAD identity and token when the user is invoking the flow.

 

However, for automated flows that run in the background, we no longer have any securable identity from the end user who happens to cause that event. As a result, we have no way to run on behalf of that user. That being said, we understand that this is important scenario and one we will see if there's some other way to solve.
