Copy SharePoint Item For Task ID & Month Combination to and Archive SharePoint

Hello, I have to SharePoint List and I want to copy an item to another SharePoint Archive list when the item is modified from the source SharePoint.


I have seen some of the solutions in blogs and MS Community but I cannot apply Update Item block that requires ID*.


  • My unique identifier is if Task ID and Month Period combination
  • If the Task ID and Month Period doesn't exist in the SharePoint List this Item should be created to the destination site. 
  • If the Task ID and Month Period already exist I need to update only both the Status and Comment field
  • Please note that I am not using the default ID column in SharePoint list but I created my own Task ID column


Any ideas?

Hi @FCGALLEG  I was able to create a workaround, still doing a test.


If an item has been modified what is the right condition to evaluate if it is a new combination of Task ID & Month otherwise it is an update.
