Trigger for when an email is moved to a folder

It would be very helpful to have a trigger for when an email is moved to a specific folder.  I have an outlook server rule which tags my incoming messages with categories.  After reading them I move them to a single folder "no action required".  I have a series of client rules which I enable and manually run which check the categories and move the messages to folders for longer term archiving.  It would be nice to have a trigger so when I move the item to the folder it is a trigger for other actions.  


Thank you for the consideration.

When email is moved to a folder in outlook if that could trigger a flow , it will be very cool...for moving application specific things around

This would be great if I could move an email to a folder and have that same email auto copied to OneNote.  Our email retention period limits my effectiveness.  This would help me get around that.

Yes! For high volume inbox management, this would be a powerful trigger. I want to make use of the attachement filer, but it's not helpful to have them land in a single folder. If the process could be triggered by moving an email to an Outlook folder, attachments can be placed in a more refined file structure.

I am in the same position as jjwall - I need a trigger to file attachments based on the outlook folder I store the email in.

I'm doing the same thing. I'd like to get the attachement of an email moved to a table to improve my process.

Yes, I'm looking for this as well. 

I move email to folder in IOS Outlook using the swip feature. Onced the email is in the folder, I would like Flow to initiate some actions.

This idea is duplicated here:


I'd like to manually sort my mail first and then trigger flow on the outcome, archiving certain mails later put to certain folders manually. please make it reality.

I had a request to make this work. So a user could create planner items for the project team when emails are moved to a specified folder. This trigger would make my life so much easier.
