When file is checked in, start approval to accept/reject edits

Hello all,

 

I am trying to create a workflow such that when a file is checked back into a list, it starts a flow that sends Approve/Reject to a manager who will decide if the edits made can stand in that file. I have started the flow that does the Approve/Reject process, but am lost on how to connect it to the check in part. Here are the screenshots of my flow so far. Please let me know if you can assist, thank you.

Your screenshot shows the "When an Item or File is Modified" trigger to start your flow.  it gets added in the Trigger Conditions under Settings on the '...' menu of the trigger.  Here's an article that shows where and how to add it.

The problem is that there is no trigger that fires when a file is Checked In.  So you are triggering your flow on when a file is modified.  YOu can add the following trigger condition to make sure the flow only triggers when the file is Checked In.

@equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/{IsCheckedOut}'], false)

Yes, I do not have any trigger because I was unsure how to start. Thank you for the trigger, can you also let me know where would I put this in my flow?
