Send email notification when new folder is folder is created


Is it possible to create a flow that would solve what I am trying to achieve.

I have different clients who are not microsoft users. They have gmail, yahoomail etc etc.

They have access to their folder on my onedrive for business.

Is there a way to send them automatice email notifications when and file is added to their folder?

And what flow should I use?

To send an email when an item has been uploaded to a specified folder in OneDrive or OneDrive for Business:

  1. Create a Flow and select the "When a file is created properties only" trigger.  This trigger exists for both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business - select the one that applies to you.
    1. Select the folder that you want to monitor
  2. Add a Send email action (Office 365 Outlook or - add the email address, etc.

That's it!
