Move email attachments from multiple sub folders

I have set up a flow to automatically move email attachments to a dropbox folder. However I have multiple sub folders that are populated using outlook rules so only the emails that land in my inbox are triggering the flow. Is there an option to have multiple triggers for the same action because the only way I can see is to create multiple flows for each sub folder and that's a huge task.

Re: Move email attachments from multiple sub folders

Yeah thanks Mabel

 

I just ended up working with the original rule and 'saving as', chaging the trigger email folder and renaming each one. 20+ rules later, I have everything covered. Didn't take as long as I thought but still a bit of a pain to do.

Re: Move email attachments from multiple sub folders

Hi Gonadman,

 

As you said, when using the trigger “When a new email arrives”, we are asked to specify a specific folder. So only the email arrives at specific folder can be detected.

I haven’t seen a similar idea on Flow Ideas Forum, please consider to create a new one at here, I will also collect and report this request on my side.

Re: Move email attachments from multiple sub folders

This is counterproductive. The Flow should be configured to accept multiple folders, similar to being able to add multiple recipeints. This is a Microsoft matter, therefore I will send feedback.
