I currently have a SharePoint document library with files uploaded by multiple (10+) users. When the files are moved to another location in the same library (eg. completed folder) I need to notify the original creator via email that the files have be moved to the completed folder.
Is there a way I can do this with a flow. I have a flow built that will accomplish this but when the files are moved to a new folder, the original creator's name/email is replaced by whoever has moved it
I would just grab the name and email (into Compose or variables) before you move the file? Then use that for your email.
The flow is triggered when the files are moved to the completed folder to alert the creator they are finished. Is there a way I can grab the original info from before the file is moved if the flow is triggered when they enter the completed folder?
I would consider adding an additional column to both the source and destination libraries - make it a person or group column. You can make the column hidden. Store the original creator of the document in that column - you can have a Flow populate that value in the source library. That column data, assuming that the column names are the same, should carry over to the destination library.
I think that might work. Trying it now
@ScottShearer what would be the easiest way to use a flow to grab the original creator and store it to the new person column?
