How to have Action triggers once, but not on all Record Edits?

Publication date: August 8, 2018

Hello,

Anyway to prevent “Actions” to run only once and from re-triggering after a record has been edited? I have trigger for when a File field is “not empty.” Anytime that record is edited, the Action gets runs again if a file has already been uploaded.

Is there a way or Condition that only triggers if “on change” or something like that? I also tried an extra validation field in the Action conditions (yes/no) but since its value is saved it is only useful for the initial edit.

1) Anyway to run Actions once per-record or prevent from running
2) Anyway to reset a form field to a value – regardless of what was saved in the record?

Workflow to help: Person X submits initial form → Person Y receives notice from Allow End-User Edits Notification, and uploads a file to that record via Edit Records → Action is triggered by the file being uploaded to the record and email sent to Person Z
