Get file name for a selected item

Hello, 

 

For a selected item in a SharePoint list, we would like to add a file when the user selects the item with a Flow button:

2019-02-20_15h07_23.png

 

I found a way to add the file content, but what about the file name? 

 

Here are some snapshots of the Flow:

1. Where the user will add the file:

2019-02-20_14h51_00.png

2. When the file attached in the list item - how do I get the file name here?

Thank you

Hello, 

 

Thank you for this. I have added this in the Flow.

By the way, do you know how to handle this with several files?

Hi @JPC ,

 

I believe attach CRM Content is something like a browse button and select the file. Why not pass the filename at the same time? Where you running the flow from?

 

Thanks

In between, I found a way to analyse the formatting of the different files by adding the following in Flow:

When running this Flow, I was able to extract the information to be completed in the following stages in order to extract the file names (first file is 'file', second is 'file_1',...)

In my Flow, the first file is mandatory, others are optionals (content is checked):
