Get email message when new folder is created in OneDrive for business

I created a flow with "when a file is created" action. It is supposed to be triggered by folder creation. But it isn't. It works for files but when I create new folder I don't get the notification via mail. 

My flow configuration: https://postimg.cc/3d5GhVRs

Hey Mate,

 

Microsoft Flow does not have an action to create folders in either OneDrive or SharePoint. 

 

One workaround is documented at https://buildbod.com/2019/04/26/creating-folders-in-onedrive-and-sharepoint-using-microsoft-flow/

I've been missunderstood. I don't want to automate folder creation process. I simply want to get notified (via email) when I manually create new folders. Is that possible? I've checked list of triggers in official documentation and I didn't find antything https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/onedriveforbusiness/#triggers

Ahh sorry mate, I read it in a hurry... There is no Trigger "When a folder is created" and when a file is created does not trigger for a folder creation.. I think with the current set of triggers this isn’t possible to accomplish in OneDrive...
