Have Creation of a SharePoint site (SPO) as a trigger

I think creation of a SPO site should be a flow trigger.


We would use the trigger to then flow as an item into a SP list, that records links to all subsites within a site.


Right now (to my knowledge) such a "list" can only be done using the TOC web part (which is extermemly limited in functionality), or a CSWP (which is extremely limited in display options).


The list of subsites functionality was apparently removed after SP 2007/2010 versions. Now, if you do not know coding, and want something OOTB, we should have the ability to do this in SPO.

Hi @abracken,


Thanks for the ideas.

Please consider submit this as an idea in the Microsoft Flow idea forum:

Currently Microsoft Flow would support to work with SharePoint list, SharePoint Files, and there are planning for support SharePoint library:

You may also consider to use SharePoint API to define a trigger by yourself:
