How to monitor a OD4B folder - and share that capability with users

Hi all-


There's a trigger "When a file is created" for One Drive For Business. I'd like to build similar functionality into an existing Flow that is shared with "Run Only" users. Is this possible?


I'm trying include an option for my users to have a OD4B folder monitored so that when files are added, the flow is then triggered.

In trying to avoid them having to go and build a "When a file is created" Flow themselves, but I can't seem to find a way to share that kind of Flow or build a similar operation.

Open to suggestions or ideas.. Thanks!

Hi @ryan2k ,

In your scenario „run only“ is not possible.

If you have a new flow you can send each of your your co-worker a copy of the flow

Or create a mailbox, manage your colleges there and send the mail to the mailbox.


You can also think about storing the data into SharePoint and using the alert functionality.

Just a thought : what about posting it into teams (if in use)?


Happy to help.
