How to Build a Flow that is Triggered when an Item is Viewed?

We're trying to build a flow that sends an email to an administrator when content is viewed in a Document Library.  This is part of a training site and we need a way to document that new employees have viewed the videos in this library.  Any ideas on where to start?  We know the flow for New Items Added to SP is not what we need.  I've reviewed the various templates in Flow and don't see anything yet.  Thoughts/Recommendations?  We're new to Flow but are excited to have power users develop these instead of IT!

Hi @ITHappens,

 

I am afraid that currently there is no trigger can be used for When an item/file is viewed. Here is a similar request on Flow Ideas Forum, please vote the idea at here, PGs will take the hot ideas into consideration first in the future releases:

Sad about it.  We're having to do a lot of work-around effort that requires up-front user interaction on the content being viewed.  Seems like a Flow option would make this simple.  Thanks for your reply.
