Trigger Approval When Item Added To Subfolder

Hello All -

  I'm using the templated Flow "Request approval in Microsoft Teams when a SharePoint item is created", which I have working fine except I would like to drilldown to a specific folder as the "trigger" folder.  Right now, I have an Excel process that creates two files - a PDF and an XLSX - which are each saved to a respective folder within that SharePoint item.  So, SharePoint > Documents > Child PDFs and SharePoint > Documents > Child XLSXs.  In the Flow set up, I can't seem to drill down to one of these document folders - it only works on the parent level (SharePoint), which means that my Flow gets triggered twice - once each for each new item to those folders.   How can I configure the Site Address and List Name fields in the Flow set up to trigger when an item is added to only the PDFs folder?

 

Thanks very much.

Hi @a68tbird ,

 

The trigger of the template is "When an item is created" in a list, for your scenario, you will need the trigger "When a file is created in a folder" and you will be able to restrict the folder by select from the folder list:

Hope this helps.
