Copying files within google drive

Hi, 

I am building a flow to copy and rename a document from one folder to another within Google drive The original document is a google document. The copied file is a HTML file.  I was expecting the copied file to be in the same format as the original document. 

Was wondering if any one here has come across this and how do you over come it?

 

thanks

Re: Copying files within google drive

Hi @jasperw,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Which google document is your original document?

Further, if the original google document is word document, do you want the copied file (HTML file) to be same format with it?

 

I have made a test on my side and my flow's configuration as below:10.JPG

The copied file shows up as below:

 

11.JPG

I afraid that there is no way to format the copied file as same format with original document in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Copying files within google drive

Hi Kris,

 

I can't get the insert image to work so I will describe what my setting in google drive copy file connector.

 

Source URL:https://docs.google.com/document/d/ID

Dest FIle Path : 2018/test  (The document name is test)

 

The destination file is created but is html format and looks like your second screen clip. I have tried various file formats .doc / .docx etc but it ends up the same.

IFTTT also gives the same outcome. 

I came to the same conclusion that there is no way to duplicate google drive files and maintain format.

 

thanks
