The Selected Item/File trigger for Power Automate allows users to trigger a flow when a specific file or item is selected within a SharePoint list or library. This trigger is often used when a user needs to take action on a particular file or item in SharePoint. For example, a user may want to create a flow that sends an email to a manager whenever a new item is added to a list or library. With the Selected Item/File trigger, the user can create a flow that is triggered whenever the new item is selected. This allows the user to quickly and easily take action on the new item without having to manually select it.
