"Allow respondents to edit their responses" does not fire flow trigger

New Contributor

New Option "Allow respondents to edit their responses" is added.


But flow doesn't fire when answer is edited and submitted.
This makes no sense...Also test the connector, plz.

@kotato196 actually it does make sense because a new response has not been submitted, the original response has been edited and the response re-submitted. Power Automate has not yet had a new trigger built for this as this feature is brand new. Hopefully Microsoft will build one shortly.

Hi Rob,

I was testing this feature in the past weeks and facing the same challenge. It would make sense as you said if saving the form for later editing did not trigger the associated flow but it does when the form is filled for the first time half-way through and saved for later editing. I can see that Flows react to that event as if the form was submitted. However, when editing the same form and re-submitting it later, the same flow does not react at all as if the form ID has changed when it was saved by the user and appeared in user's 'Filled forms' folder in Forms. 

So, it makes me feel that this is rather a bug in the newly (and raw) cooked feature in Forms that Flows is not aligned to yet. What do you think? 

For my particular task I want the flow to be triggered after every editing and re-submission of the associated form. And I want users to be able to do changes unlimited times and the flow collect new data set with every new editing. 

Thank you!
