Email alerts to designated team when folders are created in SharePoint

Creating email alerts for when folders within a particular SharePoint is created. Documents are editted constantly, but if there's a new job folder, it would be nice if everyone could be notified as soon as it's created, with a custom message.

Re: Email alerts to designated team when folders are created in SharePoint

Hi @ WKCabling,

 

Do you want to create email alerts to some person when a folder is created in a sharepoint library?

Microsoft flow support to trigger a flow when a file is created in a sharepoint library, so whenever a folder or a file is created in the sharepoint library, the flow would be triggered.

 

Triggering a flow only when a folder is created in a sharepoint library is not supported in microsoft flow currently,

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

However,as an alternative way, you could add a condition under the trigger "when a file is created" of sharepoint connector to check if the "new created" is a file or a folder, if the "new created" is a folder, add action to email alerts to some person, if the "new created" is a file, do nothing.

 

You could create a flow as screenshot below:

Note:

Choose the "File name with extention" dynamic content of the trigger in the first field of the Condition.

if the "new created" is a folder, the "File name with extention" dynamic content of the trigger wouldn't contain ".",

if the "new created" is a file, the "File name with extention" dynamic content of the trigger would contain ".".

 

When a folder is created in the sharepoint library, the flow would run successfully to send the email as below:
