Forms - Upload File to OneDrive with File Name and Folder Name

Hi,

I am new to Power Automate.

I would like to create a flow from Forms while a File is Uploaded as JPEG or PDF. The JPEG or PDF is to be uploaded to One Drive.

 

The folder and File while being uploaded should be like the below

 

Folder Name as : XYZ@emm..com

File Name : should just be the date from the form I selected.

I can attach two files as restrictions in the form.

 

I got a power automate from the flow but it seems that when the file is uploaded to One Drive the file format is not supported at all. I am not able to read the File at all. Don't know what is the trouble.

Hi ,

 

Thanks for your reply. As I said, I am new to it.

I couldn't understand anything from your reply  such as Parse, why is it being done. Is it possible to explain it simpler by step on what I need to enter the expression in each step.

Hi @SANJURK ,

 

Hope the links below could help you:

https://www.bythedevs.com/post/working-with-files-on-ms-forms-group-form-in-ms-power-automate

 

For the Parse JSON step, you could generate the schema from the sample, the sample is the File output of the response, you could run a flow to copy the File output from the response, and then paste it in the current flow to generate the schema.

I tried

Tried it and error pops up. I do not know what am I doing wrong. Since I am new with ParseJson and Flow, I am not able to figure it out. I tried few youtube videos not able to figure it out.

 

I just need the file from the Form that has been uploaded to be copied to OneDrive with Folder as "responder email address" and the file inside the folder with the date in the form.

I have attached the Flow I had created from both the messages received and also the errors received to have a look.

Please help !!

 

 

Flow 1Flow 1

 

Flow 2Flow 2

 

Flow 3Flow 3

 

Below is the error received

In the Forms, I have added a question as Date of the Time Sheet the person has to mention. I wanted this date to be appearing in the file name, not the system date.

The Flow assigned is above. How would I be able to add this date from the Form in the expression.

I just need the output file as

DatefromtheformSelected_UserName


Username is the name of the User in the Organization.
Date from the Form is the Date Selected in the Form
I wanted to truncate the File name, because as you know some files when uploaded has a large file name.

Since this Form is within organization and it goes on as a loop to minimize difference in the file names, the above would be really helpful.Thanks for taking the time to help.
