Automate Screenshot Process

Hi, 

 

is there a way to automatically screenshot a file and then save the screenshot to a certain folder?

 

I would like to save a PowerPoint file (only one slide!) to my OneDrive and then automatically create a screenshot of the whole slide. If taking a screenshot doesnt work, is it maybe possible to export the slide as an image?!

 

Thanks in advance and happy new year!

 

Tom

Hi @ts101 

 

Not sure this can be achieved via Flow. Also the challenge is what's going to be your trigger for the flow (Manual?). 

 

PowerPoint can save file as image by select file > save as > choose the location (one drive) and filename.  

 

Thanks

Hi @ts101 

For SharePoint you can use the rest api 

_layouts/15/getpreview.ashx?path=completefileurl&resolution=3

to get a snapshot of a file (I beleive it picks up the first image) - check the documentation for this api

 

for OneDrive graph api does have endpoints to get the thumbnails

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/developer/rest-api/api/driveitem_list_thumbnails?view=odsp...

 

Also, you could use the new UI flow (preview) to access onedrive and accordingly take snapshot of file
