How to ensure your Flow doesn't process until your file has finished uploading

Flow has some great functionality which allows you to interact with files and large content, however if you try to do something with them before the file has finished uploading, then you can introduce issues. There is no obvious flag on the file to show that it's ready, but there is a way!

In this case/example using the SharePoint standard connector, I would recommend using the Operation ID: OnNewFile trigger to implement a similar flow control that continues the process after the file finished uploading.

That's nice. I have a similar issue with a flow that triggers on folder creation but it always takes "new folder" as the name...I think this could work for that too!
