Copy files to another location and a folder based on document library custom colum

Hello,

 

Im looking for a way to copy a file from a document library to a new folder based on a custom column.

Example: Document Library has a custom column named Attributes. Document/file has has the value Yes on the Attributes column. The file wil be copied to a new location and into a folder called Attributes.

 

Is this possible?, if it is, can you guide me the right way to do this?

Hi @Anonymous 

 

There is a SharePoint flow action called Copy File. 

 

Have a look at this and see whether it meets your requirements or not?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Yes, your requirement could be achieved, you could create a flow for a selected file, and add a Condition check the column value of the Attributes , if the column value of the Attributes is equal to Yes, add a copy file action to copy the file to the new folder.

Please take a try and let me know if you have any questions.

 

Best regards,

Alice

@v-alzhan-msft  Could this also be archived without need of selected a specific file? It would be a a Document Library with a lot of files in different folders. And it would be amazing if the flow could find every file in different folders, and copy to the correct place of the flow.
