Copy Files to Teams Channel on Creation

I created an MS Forms form and am using the text in one of the fields in the form to create a Teams Channel with the same name.

 

The next piece of my puzzle is to copy a set of files from a SharePoint site (or Windows Share) to the newly created Teams Channel when that new Channel is created. I've been working on this for a little while and not come up with any solutions as of yet. Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

My best guess at this point is to copy a file when a new item creation triggers in a SharePoint list. I was thinking that if I could update a list in SharePoint with the field mentionned above and have that trigger a copy from a SharePoint Library to the folder that was created when the new Channel was created. I can't see to figure out how to set the destination to the newly created Channel.

Below is the bit I have working. Just looking to expand upon this to copy files from a SharePoint site to the newly created channel when it's created. I should also add that a new folder is created in the Teams Site per channel. All new channels create their documents in the same document library.

did you find a resolution ?  I have a similar need.  I am created a new Teams Channel under a Team and would like to copy a setup of folders/doc as a template format to this channel under files.  I have tried the above - using the sharepoint connector as you did above to access a document library and folder to copy.
