Trigger when an Office 365 user is created



When a O365 user is created I'd like to be able to create an item in a SharePoint list.  Is this possible?  Is there a trigger I could use?

@stranter there's no trigger for when a new Office 365 user is created.

I dont have full access to some of our innerworkings, but our o365 admin has configured an email alert that is sent out to us upon the creation of a new user account.

We then use the trigger for when the email arrives, filtered to the specific subject.

A few scripts then extract the vitals of name, department, title and location.


We use that for a Slack message to a particular channel and so in theory you could do something like that to poulate your SP list with the new hire data.
