Copying an item to a list folder?

I've been tasked with creating a workflow/flow that would move a item to a folder on the same list.

I understand that the items can't be moved with a flow, so copying the item and deleting the original seems like the best idea.

The main issue I have is identifying the folder in the list in order to copy the item in it. Is there a way to use Flow or SPD to copy the item inside a specific list folder?

Hi @DemoMan,

 

Could you please explain more details about the list folder that you mentioned?

 

If you want to move the items from a list to another list, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

Re: Copying an item to a list folder?

Hi Alice,

 

Thank you for your response I apoligize for the delay in replying back. In more detail what I'm trying to accomplish is as follows:

 

I created a folder on a list, by going to Items>New Folder.

I added specific permissions to this folder because only specific users should see the folder or the items inside of it.

I have a flow that creates an item on this list based on the contents of an email.

I'm trying to create the item inside of the folder that already exists on this list by using flow.

If creating the item inside the folder is not possible I could also use a way to create the item on the list, then copy it to the folder and delete the original.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thank You for your help.

Re: Copying an item to a list folder?

Hi Alice, I was able to do it this way using SharePoint Designer, I set Folder as a field in the create item variable and I added the name of the list folder where I wanted the item to be created in the Value field. This creates an item inside the folder in a list. is there a way to import this into flow?
