Outlook trigger on an Outlook Search Folder?

Greetings!

 

I am trying to leverage one of my "Search Folders" in Outlook as a target folder for Outlook trigger: When a new email arrives (V3).

 

The search folders are not selectable, which makes me think they exist within the Outlook milieu not as directories but as labelled filters.

 

Is there an innovative workaround for this?

 

Thanks!

Thanks @VictorIvanidze 

 

I am trying to isolate specific senders ("From"). 

 

I have Outlook rules that will route messages from single recipients to varying different email folders based on content-based rules in the Subject or Body of the email.

 

As I have an "Unread" search folder in my Outlook, I was hoping I could focus on messages received there rather than having to reference each individual folder to which the sender's message could be routed.

 

I hope that makes sense!

I see. You can run a scheduled flow every 5 minutes and check all your folders.
