Trigger flow when a file is created in a Sharepoint Subsite

I have a SharePoint site which has 5 different subsites in it.


I am trying to create a flow trigger in the main site that detects if a file is created in any of the subsites...this is to avoid having to create a seperate flow for each subsite.


The trigger I am using is When a file is created (properties only). 


The only value I receive for Library Name is Documents or I can enter a custom value. How would I set a custom value for library name to be the subsites and then the folder to be /Shared Documents of every subsite?

Hi @TiagoSa,


Unfortunately, there is no way could monitor 5 subsites at the same time by using only one Flow.

It's a bit of a hassle, but all you can do is set up 5 flows to monitor 5 subsites.
