Trigger a Microsoft flow only when a SharePoint list item is modified – An alternative approach

Introduction

One of my friend asked me whether there is a Microsoft flow action to trigger the flow only when a SharePoint Online list item is modified. Unfortunately there is no out of the box trigger available.

Solution

We can overcome this by adding a condition at the beginning of the flow - we have to check whether the created date time and modified date time are not equal. So the flow will execute only if the created time and modified time is not equal.

Please check the below screenshot for the reference.
