Retrieving multiple Files properties (modification date) from Sharepoint location

hello all

 

I am having difficulties to understand why my flow doesnt work. 

let me explain what I want it to do: 

I have a sharepoint folder with excel(binary) files inside. When somebody modifies/updates the contents of one of the file I would like the flow to retrieve that files data - 3 properties ( below ) and add those into a new row in an excel file which I have on the onedrive( sharepoint)/ 

1. File name

2. Modified date

3. Modified by (who)

heres my flow:

it does take what I need but not on modification.

 

anyone, any ideas pls? 

 

thanks

Cristian

Hi, @Anonymous,

 

You could use When a file is created or modified (properties only) as the Trigger, and the Folder field could also be configured.

Then select the corresponding Dynamic content fill in the field in Add a row into a table action.

Also, do you want to add all three properties of the file to the Table?

The significance of this Flow configuration is that as long as one file is updated, the corresponding three properties of the file will be added, so I think it may not be necessary to use Get items to get information about all the files.

I have made a test on my side and the flow works well.

Flow works well, as below:

Please take a try.
