I have alot of videos that I want to copy from a sharepoint library to dropbox.
Using a template I see this flow can only run when new files are added (when files created) in the sharepoint library.
I want to be able for the flow to look inside a sharepoint library or folder nd to be able to COPY the exisitng files to dropbox.
How do I do this? See below default template I want to tweak.
hi @laz8592 you have only one way and is changing your trigger, so you can select schedule and run depends on a especifc date or manually so you can run it when you need.
So basically I create a 'scheduled flow' with the 'when a file is created' sharepoint trigger and then create the file action on dropbox?
Before creating a file, you need to get the file's properties and file content, and then create a new file.
After flow runs, the files in this folder will be copied to the Dropbox folder.
Hope the content above may help you.
Does your folder contain subfolders?
If it contains subfolders, you can first determine whether the file is a folder, if it is a folder, skip it, if not, copy it to DropBox.
I am having a problem with the isfolder value. When its there the error is shown below. If i select a single file in the File identifier it copies the file successfully. I want to be able to copy whole folders and everything inside them.
If you want to copy the entire folder to Dropbox, you can refer to the screenshots below.
Suppose I want to copy every files inside the ‘Copy’ folder including the subfolders in Documents library to Dropbox.
Flow in details:
Get the folder path with this formula.
‘Copy’ folder and subfolders are automatically created when new files are created.
After flow runs, the 'Copy' folder will be copied to Dropbox.
thank you very much for your help but the latest option is throwing up too many errors now.
I have spent too much time on this, as it requires alot of configuring, I will go back to copying manually from onedrive to Dropbox
Thank you for your time.
