Sync a SP Document Library with other Doc Lib in other SP Sites

Hello, I'm trying to make one flow (at the moment I'm using 2 flows, one for create and edit, and a second one for delete) that does this :

1 - When a file is created in a SP Document Library, the flow copies it in another SP Doc Lib into other SP Sites.

 

2 -  When the new file gets modified, it must be updated on the other sites too.

 

3 - When it gets deleted, it must be deleted on the other sites too.

 

Now :

1 - If I upload the file on the Main SP Site from the web interface, the flow gets triggered and does its job,

but when I put a file into the respective OneDrive synced folder on my computer,

the file is uploaded on SP, but the flow does not get triggered until I upload another file on SP from the web interface,

maybe this is a problem of permissions ?

 

2 - When the file gets modified, it gets updated on the other sites too,

but when I rename it, the flow creates a new file on the other sites, instead of renaming the same file.

 

3 - About the delete, it works.

 

Here are the screenshots of my flow for when a file is created and modified,

Renaming the file in a document library always create a new file as the flow could not find the same file name in other locations. It is a limitation. 

 

Workaround:

Create a SharePoint list with columns New File Name, Old File Name. Once the user enter the information, trigger a flow to Copy the file with new name and delete the file with old name.

 

I know its really weird.
