When a file is modified - dropbox

i have the basic flows When a file is created / modified for dropbox. (so have two flows)

This works fine when i copy and past a file in that directory it gives me a message.

But when my Revit (autodesk program) saves a file to that directory and creates a backup file.. the flow is not triggerd

Have you tried the When a file is modified (properties only) and/or When a file is created (properties only) triggers?

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.

Hi @Arno1975 ,

 

Could you share a screen shot of your flow?

 

I have made a test by creating two flows with Dropbox triggers, When a file is created and When a file is modified.

 

The issue you mentioned could not be reproduced. Whenever a file is created/copied/modified, the flow triggered successfully.

 

I don’t have the autodesk program Revit to test this issue, not sure if it the cause.

 

I will do more research and back to you once I got any updates.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

happy to make a skype call and share my screen with you to show it.

Hi @Arno1975 ,

 

After making more tests on this issue, the triggers When a file is modified and When a file is created are working properly when I create/modify files in the folder.

 

However, I don’t have autodesk program Revit to test this issue.

 

If you create a file into the Dropbox folder via flow, will that trigger the flow?

 

Best regards,

Mabel
