Need Flow trigger event in SharePoint based on new FOLDER creation in folder

Each client folder contains several files.  I need to be able to trigger Flow based on adding a folder to workflow (doc library).  This allows us to keep multiple related documents together in a client-file structure while processing through automated workflow.  We are currently sending a single file for each client-project through workflow, which creates unnecessary client file separations, redundancies, and extra file movement, all increasing risk exposure to the process.

+1 - big need for us.  There is already a robust template/flow for file triggers; not sure why no folder trigger.

I agree this is a huge need. When I move a folder (with subfolders) into a particular master folder, I need to be able to trigger a planner event for only the main folder and not each subfolder as well.

Hi All,

I agree this is a very critical need. Its been a over 6 months  since the OP posted this. Does anyone have any clue whether MS has acted on this?

I have not seen any movement. Crazy as this is a simmple request, but would make a world of difference.
