Modified item flow is being triggered when a new item is added

Hi there,

 

I have created 2 flows for a Sharepoint list.

  1. Send an email when a new item is created
  2. Send an email when an existing item is modified

When a new item is created both flows are being executed. How can I make the second flow to execute only after the item is created and then being modified by a user.

 

I have created the flow when an existing item is modified by selecting the corresponding template. I only changed the Send Email box with a different emailaddress and the subject and body tekst. So it is a pretty straight forward flow.

Thanks and regards.

Re: Modified item flow is being triggered when a new item is added

Hi @Ewoud ,

 

In fact, when an item is modified is When an item is created or modified.

It's just that the template may rename the name of the trigger to what you see now.

So it actually contains the logic that will be triggered when a new item is created.

Sorry for the confusion caused by you, MS Flow does not currently support monitoring only if items are modified.

If you don't want to execute the following action when the newly created item is created, you could consider adding a Condition to determine if the item is new.

If it is not new, execute the following action:

Please take a try.

Re: Modified item flow is being triggered when a new item is added

Hi @v-bacao-msft ,

 

Thanks for explaining. It's pretty confusing that one can select a template called 'Send an email when an SP item is modified' but it's actually not only for modified items. MS should rename it in my opnion.

 

Your solution works very good. I do not get 2 emails anymore. So that's perfect.

 

Thank you very much for your help.
