I am using Sharepoint to manage the photos my students submit for my school's yearbook. I've tried for two days, and can't the flow to work the way I want. Here is how I want the work to flow:
I appreciate any and all help and advice!
I didn't address the approval part of the Flow in my example - if you need an example for that, please let me know. My example would be used is the document was approved - use this on the "yes" side of your condition if the approval outcome is "Approve".
My example shows you how to copy the file from the Photo Submissions library to the yearbook Poto Storage library in the appropriate folder. In the Photo submissions library, I specify the page/folder in an option column.
If this needs additional explanation, please let me know.
One note - in my example, I used a variable. Since this value won't be changing once set, I could have/should have used a compose action rather than a variable. This is a best practice.
Thank you for your help. I'm trying.
When I tried to use the Initialize variable action, I got an error message: The operation 'Initialize variable' can only be used at top level.
I've looked at the compose action, but I'm not sure what I'm doing. I'll keep searching for information on the compose action.
I didn't realize that you were inside of a loop....
Initialize the variable at the top of your Flow - such as right after the trigger. You don't need to set it to a value.
Where I have the initialize action, use a set variable action instead.
A compose action can only be set once - if the value can change then you need to use a variable.
Alos, you won't be able to use a compose action iside of a loop.
