Let me start by saying that this is my first Power Automate flow. I am in the process of migrating from SharePoint 2010/2013 to SharePoint 365.
In my 'Project Status Notes' field I have versioning turned on. I would like for every time an item is created or modified to copy the most recent version of notes to a field called 'Most Recent Status'. I do this cause in my view I only want to view one status not all.
The problem I am running into is that when the flow runs it's like to the original person updating and I receive a warning in Power Automate - Actions in this flow may result in an infinite trigger loop. Please ensure you add appropriate conditional checks to prevent this flow from triggering itself.
What am I doing wrong and how can I resolve this?

Thank you for your response. I tried your suggestion to add the trigger and still got the Infinite Loop error. Probably something I am still doing wrong. So here is the original. As you see I am trying to update the Most Recent Project Status Notes with a the current version of the Project Status Notes column.

@Rob_Ayala Attached is an example of how I'd do that (albeit two different columns I arbitrarily picked) - did you try something like this?
Also since you're new to Flow have you looked at your flow's run history yet? It's available under "My Flows" after opening your flow (before editing it). You can click on a specific run and then see what happened at each stage of the flow. I guess if you haven't gotten it to run yet this isn't helpful, but it will be as you work with conditions and things don't work the way you'd think :)

I followed your example and still received the infinite loop. The field has been updated but since it is stuck in an infinite loop when I go back into the List I receive this error at the bottom
