Need To Check out a File when My flow Starts.

Hi,

 

I made a flow to creat and aproval process of a File in Document Library. it is a 3 step approval before Approval status is finally approved. 

 

THe issue is that I cant find a Way to check out the file when I start the flow. So if during my flow execution, someone edits the file, the approval status comes back to Draft, and the flow does not work. 

 

How can I avoid this, and how can I check out and check in the file in flow?

 

Thanks 

Breno

Hi @breno 

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to check out a file using Flow. There are several forums where this has been requested but the feature is not available at this moment.

 

Best Regards,
