How to automatically pin a folder to top once it is created by a workflow?

Hi,

I configured a flow in order to create several folders and sub folders in a doc library once an item has been added in a list. This is working fine! 

However, I need to pin one of these subfolders created by the workflow. How can I do this? 

ex.

Once an item is created, then create 

Folder 1, subfolder a (Folder1/subfoldera), subfolder b (Folder1/subfolderb)

and then : pin subfolder b

 

task 11.png

 

Pin to top functionnality is available in Sharepoint. Once this pin is selected, the folder is always displayed on the top of the library as shown in my screenshot :

There's nothing available in the flow actions to do that.  I looked to see if there was a REST call that could do it, but didn't find anything that way either.  So at this point I think the only way to do it is in the user interface.

Hi @Eri_V ,

 

I have made a test on my side and the Pin function that you mentioned is not supported in Microsoft flow currently, if you would like the function to be supported in Microsoft flow, you could submit an idea to the flow ideas forum:

Could you explain a bit more what you mean by "Pin"?
