Moving template files to a flow created Teams Channel

Hi, 

I've created a flow to generate a new channel in teams based on a submission from Forms (going through a sharepoint list).  I'd like to also automate the copy of files from a template channel in teams over to the newly created channel.  Is there a way to do this?

Hi @Genghis314 , 

 

Copying files/ adding attachments to teams as a direct action is currenlty not supported in flow. As a workaround we can use sharepoint to get this done. Please refer to the screenshot below

You can use te copy folder action and point the site address to the environemnt site where teams files get stored (to get this, go to your teams channel and click on files and then click on open in sharepoint. this way you will get the folder also). In sharepoint the folder is under Documents and it is named after the channel. In my case, i am copying all files from General channel to rr channel and so used it this way. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @Genghis314 ,

There is no trigger or action about creating/get/copy files in teams.

I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
