How to include Attachments field to the 2nd List which is automatically updating when an Item creates from another list

Hi All,

 

I have created a flow to create a new item when a new item creates in another list. It working fine. But, I am unable to find the Attachment option to create the mapping. 

 

I have a field as attachments in the 1st list but that is not showing in the Flow to app in the 2nd step

Hi @OsmandFernando 

When working with attachments I have found that these need to be handled separately from the Create Item step

 

I think you may need to use the Get Attachments -> Get File Content -> Add Attachment

 

The Get Attachments will return an array of attachments even if there is only one

Hopefully this helps

Hi @Gareth1 Thank you so much for your reply. 

 

These steps should add before create item step or after ?

Hi @OsmandFernando 

 

You could do it a couple of ways.

Option 1. - Get the attachments, create the new item then add the attachments to the newly created item

Option 2. - create the new item, get the attachments from the original item then add the attachments to the new item. 

 

Just depends on if there are other dependent actions in your flow

I used the 2 option

 

Thank you
