I'm quite new to power automate, so excuse me if i'm asking a rookie question.
I would like to create a set of folders bases on a list in excel. From the excel file I would like to get the employee name and create a folder for every name in de list.
description of the flow:
Nice to have
When a new row is created in the Excel file do the flow for that row.
Maybe it is an ambitious flow, for now i'm stuck in creating a folder based on the excel list. Some tips would be very welcome
Solved! Go to Solution.
Please follow the below steps to create folder and subfolder
For the current year you need to use formatDateTime expression. See below.
Thank you for your quick reply. For looping thru the excel rows for the names do I need to put in a "get a row" step between the create main folder and create subfolder? I was trying to do that but I don't now what to put in the Key value field.
Thank you for your help @abm
I have the basics working, one last question. The folder creation in sharepoint(teams) is happening in the Root folder and I’m not able to select a subfolder, like /general/
I'm bit of a step further, i'm able to create the main folder in General, where I want it. But i'm still doing something wrong in the create subfolder(Maak subfolder). For this he is creating a folder names shared documents then he is creating a complete new path document/general/and then the subfolders.
Am I taking over the wrong value in create subfolder?
I haven't changed the flow but i now get this error, where before this was running fine. And i'm testing with the same excel file
Looks like you are hitting the threshold limit. I can see 5120 record in that loop to process. How many total records in Excel?
Yes you are right, the range of the table was far to high. I adjusted that.
What i'm still struggling with is the location of the folders that are created.
The main folder of sharpoint is Document. Within documents we have General and there is want to create my folders:
My flow is now creating a shareddocuments folder in Documents, within shareddocuments he is creating a new general en then the folders of my flow.
my create main is looking like this:
Hi there, did you manage to solve this issue as I've been struggling to solve this for a couple of weeks now. Tried using VBA but unsuccessful, seen power automate may be an option but have 0 experience using it. @Nielsmans
