Sharepoint List - Track Changes on a individual field level

Use Case:

I have a SP list where a user is allowed to change certain fields.  I need to identify which fields changed so I can ultimately send those changes to a vendor.

 

Need:

Identify specifically which field in a SP List item changed, not just that “Something” on the item row changed so that I can:

  • Identify the changes in Power BI
  • Export the changes into Excel

 

 

Key ID

Field A

Field B

Field C

Changed BY

Change Date

Export or pull into Power BI the changes made since 01/05/21 for Key ID

I have replicated the process in this guide : https://www.pbiusergroup.com/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=fca4ea13-...

However it still returns the entire row data and not the specific field that changed. 

Thank you in advance for your time!

Hey there. I would consider using a Power Automate flow to capture the changes on an Excel sheet or email . I can't see any way to do it with just Power Query.

I’m usually answering from my phone, which means the results are visualized only in my mind. You’ll need to use my answer to know that it works—but it will work!!
