Setting up an auto email trigger wont stop

Hello, having trouble with doing a simple auto email through Gmail when button is pressed in a Podio Item. Trouble is, Gmail as well as an update back to Podio after the gmail action are on an infinite loop and go forever (hence receiving a ton of emails). Anyone have an idea why this would be? Attached photo of scenario below.


That’s because updating the item also triggers a change too. You’ll need to store a variable like “email sent” on the item so that you can add a filter after your trigger module to ignore those.


Thank you for the reply. The last action updates item field email status from send to sent. Then there is a filter right after trigger filtering for items in the send status.
