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
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.
