Microsoft Flow Trigger: New contact in OneNote personal notebook

Office Lens is a great tool but it only seems to be able to scan/parse business cards into the user's personal OneNote notebook.  I would like to see a MS Flow trigger that fires when a new contact from Office Lens appears in the user's notebook (in the Contact page, if it needs to be a very specific location).  That way, I could create a Flow that copies the contact over into a shared OneNote notebook (or maybe dump the data into a Sharepoint list).  If this trigger was available, it would allow companies to collectivize and automate the handling of business card-based contact information coming into the hands of employees.

Hi @chrisasmith,


The trigger “When a new contact from Office Lens appears in the user’s notebook” is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
