Microsoft Flow triggers now have a built-in condition checker (in the settings). Now in only 1 step, you can set a condition for a specific column, so that the trigger only fires when the condition is met!

Thanks.

Here you guys go. Only current way to do this is utilizing an HTTP request call to get a columns previous value, then act based on the change.
