My flow keeps sending duplicate emails!


I've created a flow with a condition whereby once a certain field is true, it triggers an email to two people.  My problem is that this flow is working too well!  It is sending the same notification email every two minutes!  How do i set up this flow so that no matter what changes i make in my list that it only sends the email 1 time?


Help!  I'm driving my list users crazy.

Hi Krista,


Would you please take a screenshot of the detailed information in your condition?


I have created a flow according to my understanding like below:



I received the email only one time if a new item is created and matches the condition.

My flow is based on when an item has been modified, not when an item has been created.  Is there a way to close the loop so that the email is only sent once?  I was able to successfully implement this very workflow a few weeks ago with no issues and now all of a sudden, the flow sends the same email every two minutes.
