Support for sub folders of 'OneDrive - When a file is created/modified'

I'm creating a flow that will syncrhonise between OneDrive and other cloud storage (Dropbox, OneDrive for Business, etc). Unfortunately you can only monitor a single folder at an given time, which makes it really annoying to setup a large sync structure.


Being able to monitor a root folder would be really useful.

I've just been in touch with Kent Weare who manages the MS Flow division. 


He has responded with this:


"Hi J***. Thanks for reaching out. I have talked with our PM that focuses on 1st party integration with other Microsoft services. He has requested a backlog item to be created for this scenario as we do support it in SharePoint Online. I don't have a timeline to give you, but it is now on that team's radar to deliver. Regards, Kent"


Hope that helps.

The file created or modified functionality is pretty useless if it doesn't check subfolders.

Thanks for posting your update Deilla.


And JW - I completely agree.  The function is completely useless to me if it doesn't check subfolders.  


This is a serious upgrade in capabilities for Office365, and small matter of server-load built on rethinking basic logic.

Would a trigger for when a file is created in a subfolder.

I'd also like a Trigger for when a Folder is created.

Either of these would solve my issue.

My current situation is a Folder and File within that folder are being created by a flow. I want to create share a link to the new folder using a flow, but I can't run any further flows on the Folder or the File within that folder.

This is an incredibly useful suggestion. It has been over a year and it still says "Under Review" - does anyone know why Microsoft procrastinates so long on such an easy to implement feature?


Being notified on all sub-folders would be so helpful to my business.



I need to know if a file is modified in any sub folder within a parent folder. This parent folder has 200+ subfolders. Can you believe Microsoft is making me create TWO-HUNDRED different flows just to be notified for that ONE parent folder. Why Microsoft?

Isn't the new office 365 supposed to make collaborating and sharing easier? How come it is still not implemented?

I'm feeling the pain on this limitation as well.  I constantly run into these half-built offerings with Office 365 where it's just on the brink of being useful and making sense, but they leave out something so simple and functional

 I Want to create a automatic mail attachement to my colleagues when a new file is updated in One Drive, unfortunately the files was created in a lot of sequential subdirectories (eg: Work -> 2018 -> 05 May -> 21 Monday -> "new file") 


The option "Include Subdirectories" must be support a lot of levels, anyway I need a lot of triggers!!!


Please Plan this option
