SharePoint item: Copy created or updated items to another list


Pretty new to Flow, I am trying to copy SharePoint items from one list (A) to another list (B).

So when a new item is created in list (A) it will create in the second list (B).

If the item already exists in list (B), it will update the item in the list (B).


I have followed instructions from there


But I cannot make it works...


I am able to reproduce first step:  When an item is created or modified in list (A)

Then second step, I have added Get Items from List (B)

Then added an extra step: Send me an email notification - this works and send me email with the item modified

Then the condition is created as per the exact instructions from MS support above link.


But the item is not created in the list (B) despite the fact the flow is running fine without error.


I would really appreciate some help.


Kind regards

The Flow is running without an error because you likely have an issue with your condition.

After your trigger for List 1, and the Get items for List 2 You need to create a condition that checks if the the item from List 1 already exists in List 2 by comparing column data (such as Title). If it does exist, then Update item, if it does not exist, then Create item. It would look something like this: UpdateOrCreateListItemsFromAnotherList.JPG

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.
