Hi
You mean you created the item before setting up the flow, right?
Now you already have set up your flow, try to create an item now, wait for some seconds and then modify it. Your flow should be executed twice
Hope this helps

Hi @vishalgoyal2472 ,

 

There is no any special time need to wait before you want update the item.

And I think the flow would work event though you don't wait, maybe just 1 second.

Hi @vishalgoyal2472 ,

 

Please take a try with @efialttes 's suggestion.

The flow would be triggered when an item is created and when the item is modified.

I have wait for 1-2 minutes, do we have to wait for more time after we create the item, Is there any specific time we have to wait?

Hi @vishalgoyal2472 ,
Did you reproduce the issue again? Or is it everything up and running as expected?
Thanx!

Yes issue is reproducing again and again.

Hi

Are you using a conditional trigger?

https://www.reddit.com/r/MicrosoftFlow/comments/df0v31/conditional_trigger_tutorial_for_microsoft_fl...

If not, my only suggestion is to recreate the flow from scratch. IN the old days it used to be a pain in the ass, now we can group our actions in scope and copy them to coplipboard, it is less painful

Hope this helps

I am using trigger "When an Item is created or modified"

Hi @vishalgoyal2472 ,

 

Could you please make a test again and check if your issue still exists.

It is very strange since we haven't encountered the problem.

 

Best Regards,

Alice

Hi @v-alzhan-msft ,

I have tried now and this issue is still there, Below two are result cases for two different item.

Successful Case -I created an item , immediately flow run  

Failure Case- I created another item and wait but flow not ran then I modified the item and checked the flow history-Now flow ran only on updated item (version -2) of this item.

It's a known issue from 2018.

If you do a test run to your flow or if you simply save the flow again, it will unblock.

Microsoft simply does not have a solution for this old issue. They are not able to discover the root cause of the problem that causes a freeze to a flow, preventing it to be automatically triggered.
