How to build flow to transfer files to different library after required fields are filled in

Hi all,

 

I am building a flow on top of 2 libraries in SP Online.

 

1 is the drop off library with lots of custom metadata columns, where users drop off files.

When the required metadata is filled in I need it transferred to a different library.

 

I am having issues finding a condition that says 'when required fields are filled in'.

 

The moving part including metadata I know. Its just the condition part that I'm stuck on.

I did find an old post but that's no longer applicable as we don't have the advanced mode anymore.

Hello @Ilona5 ,

try using the trigger 'When a file is created or modified (properties only)' in combination with required columns in SharePoint. The flow will complain (as below), but it'll not trigger unless you enter values into the required columns.
