Creating a shareable link from file uploaded via MS Forms

Hello!

 

I'm hoping for some help with a flow i'm trying to build. Essentially, the portion of the flow i'm stuck on is that I have a MS form, with an option to upload a file/document. What i'd like to happen is:

 

- Copy the uploaded file from the OneDrive location it automatically saves too to a SharePoint library

- Create a shareable link to the file in the SharePoint library

 

From there, I just plan to input the link into a document template which I should be able to figure out, but does anyone know if what i'm looking to do can be done? 

 

Thanks very much,

 

Chris

Yes, its possible.  The steps are as follows

1) Retrieve the file contents from OneDrive.  Steps #3 and #4 in this Blog on how to email a Forms uploaded file will help you with how to get the contents

2) Use Create File to Create a new file in the SharePoint doc library

3) Use 'Create sharing link for a file or folder' to create a sharing link for the file you just created.  You'll get the item ID when you create the file.

4) Send the link in an email.

5) Delete the original file in OneDrive -Optional
