automated flow for when a file with a specific name is uploaded

Hi all

 

I'm a novice and to be honest, Automate can be a little frustrating. I created a flow for when a file is uploaded, but I need to notify user 2 when user 1 uploads a specific file with a pre-given name. If you could help I would very much appreciate it!

 

I tried the below:

Hi @AlexandraGN 

Try to run the action one by one and see the output and then continue with the other action. Remove all the actions except the trigger and go-through the results from the trigger action. Check the filename, how it is returned whether it is with extn or not. Also, it is better to convert the filename to lowercase in the condition.

Hope it helps, please like it or mark it as a solution if it resolves your clarification or issue

Hi @AlexandraGN 

Let us know the issue that you are facing in the below flow. If you want to check for the user, then you can user the condition in addition to the filename.

Hi

 

I do not receive the email once I upload a file with that name. In the test.

I tried. It still does not work. It sends me email about all files uploaded.

Can you please let me know if I have another option?
