Get Properties from a document in a document set

Hi all

 

I have a document library consisting of Document Sets, and each Document Set have multiple documents in it. My Document Sets do not have an expire date, but documents do.

 

What I want to accomplish is to send a e-mail notification when my expiry date on a document in a Document Set is reached. I believe that this is duable, but I have one issue. When I use the Get File action in Flow, it only gets my Document Sets. How can I go past Document Sets and itterate thorugh my documents in stead? 

 

What I tried to do was somtehing like 

Reccurance (each day) -> Initialize a variable for today -> Get File (properties only) -> Condition checks my variable date and expiry date -> Apply to each -> Send Mail if Yes. 

 

Thanks.

Re: Get Properties from a document in a document set

Hi @emoii ,

 

I did a test on my side, even if it is a file in a Document set, you could also get the property through Get files(properties only) action.

Try setting Limit Column by View to Use all columns (Do not limit) to get more Dynamic content.

Re: Get Properties from a document in a document set

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

 

Thanks for looking into it.

 

Hmm I tried to change the veiw to include all of the columns, but still I am only able to see the properties for the Document Set and non for documents. Below you can see it.
