Creating a flow to upload item to another sharepoint list if satisfy a condition

Hi,

 

I have 2 lists on sharepoint - one for public marked items and the other for private marked items. The Public list is the general list which users go to and if the user selects public in the Public or Private field, i would like it to be displayed in this list. However, if a user selects private in this field, I would like the item to be uploaded to the Private Sharepoint list. How would I achieve this?

Please refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

If the Public or Private field is a Choice field, please choose the Public or Private Value dynamic content of the trigger in the Condition.

Hi,

Create a flow with when created or modified sharepoint trigger.

 

Use a condition to query your field i.e.

 

Public or Private is equal to Public

 

On the No branch, you know its private and can do your action i.e. create item.

 

You may want to do a Get Items to see if it already exists first as well, but you can add that after you get the base logic working

Hi @v-alzhan-msft ,

 

In the Private list, I have applied a list setting whereby a user could only read the private items they have created themselves. But because of this flow, each item will be created by me, disallowing users to see the private items which they created. 

 

What would be the work around for this? Can created by value be adjusted to the actual user who created the item instead of myself, who initiated the 'Create Item' flow command?

 

Kind Regards,

I
