Flow to save weekly backups of a sharepoint list in onedrive

Anybody knows if there is a template flow to create weekly backups of a sharepoint list and save it in onedrive?

If a template like that does not exist, can anyone provide some guidance on how to do it?


Thank you in advance!


What is the format of the file that you want to store in OneDrive?


You could do a get items action to collect the items in a list.


Then convert the content from the list into a json object (with a parse json action). 


Then use the create file action to save the json as a file in your one drive.

Would it be possible to program a weekly export to excell and automatically store the excell file into onedrive? Is there a template flow for that?


Thank you


There may not be a template, but you cannot save the list to excel direct, you will have to create a CSV file instead, a little bit of resurch on the forum should come up with something on that.  I have created a few save to CSV flows from a SP list and all genarally work okay.

@Pieter_Veenstramay have some other ideas as he is an expert on if you can change the CSV file into a full *.xlsx file, hopefully I may learn something to.

I found this flow: 

Copy SharePoint list items to a CSV file every week. Hope it helps you.
