1 Answer 1


the flow is working fine at my end, are you uploading file to correct folder? or just on root of document library?

Update: there are 2 triggers for File upload event.(refer above image)

  1. triggers when you upload file to root document library

  2. will trigger when you upload file to some folder already present in document library.

So if you are uploading file to root you need to change trigger to 1st in above screenshot if you are uploading in some folder in Document library user trigger 2

  • Just at the root of document library, do they make any difference ? Oct 16, 2017 at 8:51
