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.

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).

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?
