Flow triggered by adding new items into a sub-folder of a library

Hey fellas,

 

I would like to create a Flow to trigger the event when a new item has been added into a sub-folder of SharePoint Online.

 

But, my condition is a little bit of complex, I just want the Flow only being triggered when I add an item into the sub-folder of a library. Just imaging in this situation, there is a library called "Documents" in SharePoint Online, and I created few sub-folders under this library, like Analysis, Developments, and Tests, etc. Now, I only want to trigger my Flow when a new item has been added into the Analysis folder. So, the Flow should not be triggered if new items have been added into either Developments or Tests folder.

 

I can't find the appropriate steps of doing this from Flow, any ideas? 

 

Thanks

Hi @CalvinFeng,

 

This is quite easy to achieve, just remember to pick to the subfolder when you create the trigger. See in the "SharePoint - when a file is created in a folder" of "Folder id" field, navigate and pick the subfolder.

Re: Flow triggered by adding new items into a sub-folder of a library

Hi Mona,

 

In the example provided by you will work if the file was dropped in to that sub-folder. But if we drop a file in to any other sub-folders in that Document library it will not work...  This provided solution makes us to duplicate the Flow pointing to each of the Sub-folders which is going to be complex if there are number of sub-folders.

 

Instead we want to have a single Flow created and configured at root level of Document Library and it should process the file dropped in any sub-folders. Is there any such trigger available which can be used for this scenario....

 

Thanks,
