Create flow trigger when a subfolder is added to a folder on local server

I am trying to trigger a flow when I place a subfolder into a folder on my server.  we are cutting the subfolder from one location to another.  

 

As of now I have a successful flow when a file (word document / excel file) is placed.

 

However, I want this to trigger when a folder is created. Any Suggestions?

Hi @aishak12 

 

Apologies yes of course you are looking the file system. This works only for a specific folder when files are created or modified.

 

This operation triggers a flow when one or more files are created in a folder. The trigger does not fire if a file is added/updated in a subfolder. If it is required to trigger on subfolders, multiple triggers should be created.

 

Please see the documentation

Thanks
