Need a Sharepoint trigger when a list item is deleted

It seems like basic functionality to have a trigger when a Sharepoint list item is deleted, but somehow, that functionality doesn't exist. I'm not sure exactly how you could have created a trigger for when a list item is created and NOT realized, 'hey, maybe we need to have a trigger for when the item is deleted, too'!

Status: Completed

Good news - this item is completed, you can read about it in this blog post : - there are now triggers for both When an Item is delete and When a file is deleted. Thanks!

Use case:


1. When an item is being deleted from a list (or was deleted), start a flow.


Ideally I would have access to the properties of the item that is being deleted, such as the ID or title so it can be included in subsequent flow actions.

Yes PLEASE! Exactly what I need also.

Still having issues with update items (put in a request) Deleting would be the next one so yes please. Flow is so close to being able to create and maintail secondary lists based on a primary list it is frustrating to see a few bits missing.

Really need the DELETE trigger for items - that would make a complete CRUD process...

I totally agree.  Without delete trigger Flow cannot be used to automate list actions.

SharePoint trigger when an item is deleted is missing in the predefined flows 

It would be helpful when this trigger is added as part of SharePoint triggers

Missing this feature means we can't use Flow with Sharepoint... please implement.

I really do need a DELETE tigger on a List - Please Microsoft get this into Flow!!!
