Power Automate & SharePoint Online "Move To" Usage

I wish that there was a trigger whenever a file stored in SharePoint is moved from one folder to another or to another Site. While I understand that that the file already is "Created" and that it isn't being "Modified" - Move To simply by-passes created Power Automate Flows.


For more important business processes, we will design a way to "restart/retrigger" Flows for these "Move To" files. The Move To becomes a bigger hindrance when planning to move client files to Teams/SharePoint which staff could easily need to move between clients if they select the wrong client. Since these files won't necessary trigger important business processes and the metadata is being added to help with search, it won't have such a high priority to get the update data - but without finding a way to prompt the user who has "moved" the files to update, it can easily be forgotten.


Has anyone figured a way to use Power Automate to know when someone has used "Moved To" to then send the end user an email/task to remind them to update the metadata? Or is there a way to at least create a log of files that have been moved? 


Or are there plans for a "move to" trigger in Power Automate for SharePoint files?
