Move SharePoint file based on column property



I am looking to create a flow that can move a file within a document library based on which column property is selected.  There is a column which has 5 options and one of the options is to Archive.  If Archive is selected for this file, I want to move it to the Archive folder.  The file needs to keep it's version history.  I did quite a bit of searching and have not been able to find a solution.

Have you created a flow and it's not working properly?  


You should be able to start with a sharepoint trigger, 'When a file is created or modified (properties only)' set to your main document folder.  Then create a Condition, "if choice column value = archive" -> move file.  It will retain the version history so long as you move it (not copy).  


Let me know if that makes sense.

Hi @blopspro 

To do that I am using a scheduled flow where I use Get files (Properties Only)and filter query on the value which I want same as below screenshot. in my case I am using the values in two columns:
The first column: Checked_Out = 1 
The second column: PO = 1 

If I answered your question please accept my solution.
