Copying, Renaming & Sharing a file in SharePoint

Hi

 

Every Friday i need to copy a document into the same folder, rename it to (meeting name) - (Today's Date). Then I need to share the link for the document to certain colleagues with a message on the email.

 

I have tried several flows but can't get them to all work together! Can anybody share some tips for building this flow, please?

Thanks

Hi @loljay :

Do you want to achieve these features:

  • Copy a specified file
  • Paste this file into the path of the source file
  • Rename this file
  • Create a sharing link and share this link to designated users via email

I've made a test for your reference:

hi @v-bofeng-msft 

 

this is almost perfect! thankyou so much. The sequence is all perfect... the only issue is that the file type is not right. Can I make it stay as a word document when it is copied?

 

Appreciate your help!

Hi @loljay :

Yes, you only need to modify the file suffix.
