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! We wanted newer Flow makers to be able to leverage this new feature too, so here is a video that shows offr the new feature, with the bonus of a few extra tips for newer makers with minimal experience with expressions.

 

Enjoy,

Thanks! This is huge gap that we used to use all the time in SharePoint designer flows that has now been filled! Thanks for letting us know about it!

@Audrie Gordon This is great, thank you! 

 

I have a question regarding the trigger. I want to be able to trigger a flow when a specific column is modified in anyway, what is the trigger condition for that? Is it something like "@onChange("?

@Audrie Gordon I have the same question as @JodyClaggett985 . Can you provide any clarification on how to make a trigger link to a specific column being modified?

 

Thanks.

@Audrie Gordon 

 

Finally, Very good! 

 

Thx for sharing.

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.

Excellent, thanks @Chris Webb !
