Chage a trigger from "when an existing item is modified" to "when a new item is created"

I have a flow that is curretnly trigged by "when an exisiting (sharepoint) item is modified" and I need it to trigger on "when a new item is created" instead. I've tired adding the new trigger (which works) but it won't let me delete the old tigger. I have about 11 specific emails that the flow can generate depending on different conditions so I don't want to have to build the whole thing over.


Certainly there is an easy way to do this. Anyone able to help?

Hi @b_henning,


The trigger won't be deleted should be caused by using content.

Please take a check of the following actions, make sure there is no content used from the "When an existing item is modified" trigger, and when all the contents are removed, you should be able to delete that trigger.
