Flow for Box does not detect files added in subfolders

Hello,

 

I am using the template for Box to send an email whenever a file is added: Get an email when files are added to your box folder 

 

However, the action is not triggered if a file is added to any subfolders. It seems I would have to make a flow for every individual folder which would be very time consuming. Also, if there is a way to expand the function for every time a file is modified please let me know.

Re: Flow for Box does not detect files added in subfolders

 Do you want to monitor if a new file is created in sub-folders of a specific folder using Microsoft Flow?
 
I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently, It is a known issue that file triggers won't fire for files being added inside of nested folders inside the folder you select.
 
If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

More details about known issues and resolutions in Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:
