New InfoPath form in SPO Library

I'm trying to create a flow to send an approval email when a new InfoPath form is added to a library, but I'm finding that when a new file is created from the library (New - InfoPath Form), the flow does not kick-off.  It only triggers when a file is uploaded.


Is there a way around this since users will be creating InfoPath files from the library, not uploading them into the library.

Re: New InfoPath form in SPO Library

Hi @Microuts,


Are you trying to trigger a flow when an InfoPath form is published to SharePoint library like a file?


I am afraid that it is not possible currently cause the trigger When a file is created in a library can only be triggered by files.


If you need this feature, please submit a request on Flow Ideas Forum:
