We have a job that can only run once a day. On occasion an adjustment needs to be made, but the job should not run after that adjustment. It should wait until the next file is uploaded, usually the next day. Is there a way to set a dependency or condition to not run if the job has already ran for the day? We are not allowed to delete the files off of the SFTP site that we are triggering from.

What are you adjusting when you make an adjustment? The trigger itself? If so, maybe this setting is relevant:

not usually. This time I was reactivating a task that had been shut off the previous day.

You could set up a condition or a Flow to check if a file exists before the job runs

we don't delete it off of the FTP server that we check. So, there will always be a file that exists.
