Sharepoint to OneDrive (With Flow Confusion)

I created a sharepoint site then synced the Documents. As I couldn't specify where to set it, I left it on the default [UserName] -> [MyCompanyName] -> [SiteName] - Documents


Now I want to set up an email alert should a document be added to it, but this section doesn't count as OneDrive for Business, so I can't select it from within flow.


On my PC, within "C:\Users\[UserName]\", I have essentially 3 OneDrive files -

"OneDrive" - personal 1 probably, just opens the next folder up in a new window.

"OneDrive - [CompanyName]" - where Flow is searching by default, which is currently my personal shared folder for my user

"[MyCompanyName]" - this is where Sharepoint decided to create & store all Documents Syncing from sites I've made, as shown in the first paragraph.


Could someone shed some light on how to organise this? Feels very messy due to my lack of understanding. Again, trying to set up an e-mail to trigger should any file be added/modified within "[MyCompanyName]".

Hi @EddyGee ,


You only need to select the trigger based on where the file is stored. If the file is stored in the SharePoint Library, you can use the trigger contained in the SharePoint connector.

If the file is stored in OneDrive, you can use the trigger included in the OneDrive connector.

Hope it makes sense.
