Copying variable value to users clipboard

We have a situation where we would like to store the value of a variable to the clipboard of user that is executing the flow. So we are talking about the Windows clipboard here and not the clipboard feature in Flow (which I run into a lot when searching for a solution). The full use case is that we have people working on SharePoint online and they have two specific needs that we try to address with copying the path to a selected file. This should support them to open a file from a selected application (using Adobe Acrobat instead of Acrobat Reader that is default) and also to attach several files to the same email message from Outlook. The idea we have to accommodate for this is to let them check mark the file and run a flow that copies the path to their clipboard. Might sound like a long way to go for what we are looking for, but after extensive research it seems to be the best option we have.

 

Any guidance specifically on how to copy a variable value to the user's clipboard would be really appreciated. And of course any other idea that helps us with this use case would also be extremely welcome.

 

Many thanks in anticipation!

Hi @ThomasHager ,

 

The function to copy variable value to users clipboard is not supported in Microsoft flow currently, your requirement couldn't be achieved in Microsoft flow currently.
