Trigger for Uploaded File in SharePoint

I'm looking to setup a flow where the trigger is an uploaded file into a SharePoint folder. I've tried the "when file is created" which didn't seem to work. Does anyone have any helpful tips?

Re: Trigger for Uploaded File in SharePoint

Hi @jberman,

 

Would you please share more details about the input you used for the SharePoint "When a file is created" trigger?

I tested it and it works from my side:

Adding some notes, if the file uploaded has same name with files that already exists, then SharePoint would just update that file, which may not trigger the flow to run.

In this case, we could switch to the SharePoint "When a file is modified" trigger, which works when a new file is uploaded, or an existing file updated.

If you have any further questions, please post back.

Hi I have the same Issue.

When i copy the from my local drive with drag and drop to the Sharepoint, it's not working.

If i create the file direktly in the Sharepoint the trigger works fine.

Same problem.  File uploaded will not set the trigger.  Even with the modified file trigger set up.
