Workflow unintentionally starting with standard forms

We've recently upgraded to SharePoint 2019 where we have numerous lists using the standard SharePoint form and numerous workflows which start on item modification.


With SharePoint 2019, when editing an item, the properties save automatically without the user having to click Save. This is inadvertently triggering the list workflows as it thinks it's been modified, naturally this is causing us lots of issues. 


There are several lists so I don't want (or need) to be going through and customising each one, nor re-configuring the workflows.


Is anyone else having this issue? Is there any resolution?

Re: Workflow unintentionally starting with standard forms

@hejones50 I'm not aware of anyway you would be able to resolve this with making changes to the workflow. I would suggest making changes to the start conditions so that it is only triggered if the value changes or a certain field is changed.
