Flow does not trigger automatically(New/Modified Sharepoint List Item)

We are having this exact problem. Modify an item in a SP library, sometimes the flow is triggered and sometimes the flow is not. It feels like this is just becoming a known and accepted reality of the tool.  The forums are littered with similiar topics. I'm using flow plan 2 and still don't see some changes (especially when made in quick succession).  If anyone can point me to some MS documentation on this matter, i'd love to know.

Re: Flow does not trigger automatically(New/Modified Sharepoint List Item)

Hi @jlaf,


Could you share us the screenshots of your flow configuration? I want to know the detail about your trigger and steps.

Truly when an item is modified in SharePoint will not trigger the flow, such as an item modified by flow occasionally, not manually saved.

You can descript your requirements in more detail so that we can find some workaround for you.
