SharePoint check if there a new files created or modified does not seem to work

So I am new to Microsoft flow and try to build a workflow, that send me a email when there is a file modified or created. But the workflow does not work

Every 15 minutes there is a check if there any changes (how can I change this interval time?).

 

I modified files and changed files in SharePoint, but there is no trigger to start the workflow.

When I look at Run History and click on Checks.

I see that the status is “Skipped”. What does this mean?

Re: SharePoint check if there a new files created or modified does not seem to work

Hi @nlplantebak,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow’s configuration?

Which folder do you specify in the trigger?

I suppose that you specify Mainfolder in the trigger and want the flow to trigger when a new file is created or modified in Subfolder (Sub_folderA) of Mainfolder. Is it true?

 

It is a known issue that file trigger won’t fire for files being added inside of nested folders inside the folder you select in Microsoft Flow currently.

Re: SharePoint check if there a new files created or modified does not seem to work

I am getting the exact same problem. I have a flow to run when a new item is created in a sharepoint list and create a record in dynamics crm. It is skipping every run and will not trigger. Any ideas anyone? I have contacted support but no help as of yet.

Re: SharePoint check if there a new files created or modified does not seem to work

I fount the issues of my problem.

I have a certian folder structure

Mainfolder/Sub_folderA

Mainfolder/Sub_folderB

 

When i create a document in a sub folder, then there is no trigger.

When i create a document in the main folder, then the trigger goes of.

 

The trigger interval time has probaly has to do with, the subscription.

Pretty annoying with testing a workflow :(.
