OneDrive for Business New File Trigger is not working with desktop app



I'm trying to trigger a flow by adding a file to a certain OneDrive folder on my desktop. As of now this feature is not supported as I was told by the support staff.

Aren't you missing this feature too?

Hi @jmr,


Microsoft Flow is a cloud-based service, please check this doc on the connector OneDrive for Business, it says that OneDrive for Business is a cloud storage, file hosting service that allows users to sync files and later access them from a web browser or mobile device. So I am afraid that desktop OneDrive for Business file creation won’t trigger a flow.

Please check this doc for more details:


Best regards,

Hi Mabel Mao,

yes I know - that's what the support told me. But they recommended I should create a topic here and maybe the feature could be implemented in the future, if there are enough people requesting the feature.
