I am new to Power Automate. I have set up a flow such that when a file is created in a specific folder it will route to a person for approval. Often times people upload subfolders within this folder and the file to be approved is inside this subfolder along with some other files. As a result of this I am getting two or more approval notifications, one for the file that needs to be approved and then others for the sub folder and all the other files in that subfolder that do not need an approval. Is there a way to only route the file within any sub folder? It is important that we  have these subfolders  that will be created  new for each approval since there is supplemental  information in additional files along with the file that needs approval within this subfolder.
