Trigger: E-Mail Category change

Trigger a flow, if I change a category of an e-mail that is already in my inbox.

 

e.g.: I open an e-mail in Outlook desktop and set it's category to 'Licensing' and then close (and save) this e-mail. Then I want to trigger a flow to work on this e-mail.

The Power Automate team is listing this idea as 'Under Review'.

There are other similar ideas to this flow idea; it adds more weight if people would stop creating their own "ideas" and add to the voices on existing similar ideas.

+1 as well on this - want to use categories to prioritize tasks in task manager

This idea would add to the efficiency of my flows. For example, I have to have a separate flow and separate email folder to process email. Having a category trigger would allow me to use a single processing folder and a single flow that would get triggered by a category setting (get category, do this based on category).

I've voted on this, as well as this idea to create a flow from a QuickStep - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Ideas/Outlook-Button-QuickStep-to-start-a-flow/id...

When you say "another way to 'trigger' that would be to use a Outlook desktop 'QuickStep' to qickly one-klick change the categroy of an e-mail and by this triggering the flow."

 

can you share how this is possible? I can't see a way to trigger a flow from a QuickStep?
