i would like to create a Flow that creates specific pages, pulled from a template section, in a section that has been created in the same Flow by a trigger event (new calendar event).
It should look something like this:
1. Create Calendar Event -> Create Section with Name [DATE / LOCATION / SUBJECT of Calender Event] <- This part i´ve got figured out (thx to the help of this forum, for more info look here https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Create-Notebook-Section-with-Calendar-Event-Date/... 😉 )
2. Create Pages in just created Section from Templates contained in Section MASTER in the same Notebook
I tried this:
but it failed on "to each 2".
I´m not a programmer, just a guy trying to get his head around this so please have mercy on my soul 🙂
Thx in advance!
Hi @DuckPuppy ,
Could you share the details of the error message?
Could you provide the configuration in Create page in a section action?
I'm afraid I haven't fully understood the intent of your Flow. It seems that you want to create a page in the section created by Create section in a notebook action.
Please try to click Enter custom value in Notebook section field and populate The pages Url from Create section in a notebook.
Hope it helps.
thanks for the input.
The idea behind the Flow is this:
1. A calendar event with specific content is created
2. Create a new section in a specific Notebook and set the name to Date of Event + Location of Event + Subject of Event <- This part i´ve got figured out:
3. The new created section shall contain all of the template pages which are defined in a template section (called MASTER or TEMPLATES or whatever).
The intended use is whenever a specific type of event is added to a specific calender, a new section in a notebook is automatically created, named with the basic information of the event and already contains a set of sub-pages which can be defined in a template section (e.g. Basic Infos, Customer Infos, To-Do-Lists...). We already do this by hand (for planning and structuring upcoming events), but it´s tedious and prone to errors (wrong dates, wrong locations etc...).
I hope this made things clearer...
Thanks again and best regards,
Ok, i made a little progress...
This seems to do the trick to create the pages with the content of the template section:
But i can´t seem to find a way to get the created pages titles set right. They are all unnamed. I can get the page titles from the template sections and write them into the body of the created page, but how can i set the titel of a page?
Hi @DuckPuppy ,
The OneNote connector currently does not support an explicit input parameter Page Title for the Create Page actions.
This is a limitation arising from the OneNote API implementation. However, the title can be specified as a part of the Page Content in HTML by using the tags.
Please check online doc and get more details:
Ok, I´m still stuck...
With this I can get the Flow to copy the pages contained in the template section to the new section created by the same Flow:
This produces that:
But it should look like this:
If I use the <title> tag, the dynamic title content is ignored all together:Outputs:
So, the titles are still missing. I´ve tried using the HTML tags <defining the <body> and <head> tags, but then i only get empty pages.
Any help here? Where would i have to define the tags if not in the content?
