Create File in Group OneDrive

Hello - I have a Flow that is set up to create a document and save it to a file in my OneDrive folder.  Unfortunately I am leaving the company, so I created a group to transfer everything to so it doesn't live with one individual user.  I can't figure out how to have the new document that is created when the flow runs to save to the group files, however, rather than my individual account.  Thanks for the help.

Hi @LynnF 

 

Yes. Even if you are the owner, accessing shared items is currently not supported with the One Drive for Business connector. And you can definitely pull it off with SP. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @LynnF 

 

Are you trying to access the shared folders on onedrive? If so, it is currently not supported in Power Automate. https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Help-with-creating-a-Flow-with-a-OneDrive-Shared-...

I was trying to access a group's shared documents, so not just one that an individual shared with me.  I'm an owner of the group but I'm guessing it's probably not supported.  Bummer! Maybe I need to do it through Sharepoint instead of OneDrive?  Thanks for the reply.

Hi @LynnF ,

 

I agree with @yashag2255 's idea, and yes, you could take a try to create the file in sharepoint library folder and so the others could access to those files.

This worked for me... In My Connections, I added the real owner(not shared) and got it working
