Add a SharePoint column to a Document Library

Is it possible to add/remove or show/hide existing columns to a library in SharePoint Online with PowerAutomate?

 

For example, I have a script that creates new SharePoint sites, I would like the Documents library within the sites to automatically have the 'Created By' column made visible, instead of this being a manual step for the end-user.

 

Any ideas welcome!

 

Thanks

Hi!

I would suggest you to explore action 'Send an HTTP request to Sharepoint', so it allows you to invoke whatever Sharepoint API request you can think of: create new fields, create views, etc.

Great stuff here...
