Create a subfolder from a list

I have a list, and I want to create a subfolder with the name of a item each time it is created.

 

So for example:

 

List: ABC with 3 columns: Name, Phone and ID. 

(Andrea, 31653131, 22518569) 

(Daniel, 886355, 644861) 

 

Each time somebody create a new row, I want to create a new subfolder with the ID number in a existing folder(ID Numbers).

Documents/Test/ID Numbers/22518569

Documents/Test/ID Numbers/644861

 

I have tried many ways to do it, but the problem is that either it duplicate the path of the folders, or it does not create the new subfolder

(sorry about my english)

 

I would appreciate any help!

 

Thanks

Hi @abandera ,

 

Please make sure ID numbers have unique values because Create new folder action will not overwrite folders with the same name in the same path.

 

This is my configuration and it works well.
