Create Item in specific folder

Hi,

 

I have 2 lists: A & B ; 

With the same folder tree in both:

 

LIST A
Folder 1
Folder 2

...

 

LIST B
Folder 1
Folder 2

...

 

I need following Workflow :
When an item is created in Folder 1 / List A
> Create item in Folder 1 / List B

 

When an item is created in Folder 2 / List A
> Create item in Folder 2 / List B

...

 

(*I'm managing permissions via folders.)

 

Thank you very much for your help.
Ismail

Hi @Ismail,

 

Could you please show a bit more about your List A and List B? Are they both SharePoint lists?

Could you please show more details about the folder tree that you mentioned?

Further, do you create folders within your SharePoint lists (List A and List B)?

 

I suppose that you have enable "Make 'New Folder' command available" option within Advanced Settings of your SharePoint lists, is it true? If you want to create the item in Folder 1 of SharePoint List B when an item is created in Folder 1 of SharePoint List A within Microsoft Flow, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

The user thananji has same requirements with you, please check the following thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/Creating-a-list-item-inside-a-folder-str...

 

The "When an item is created" trigger of SharePoint connector could not monitor if there is an item is created in a Folder of a SharePoint list in Microsoft Flow currently. In addition, creating an item in a folder of a SharePoint list using "Create item" action is not supported in SharePoint connector of Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please consider submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
