SharePoint to OneDrive Business

Hi

 

I am completely new to this forum and urgently require some assistants.

Im trying to build a flow that will take an excel template and automatically copy it to a users One Drive for Business. 

 

I tried numerous methods and still cant get it to work due to the path formatting.

 

Please help.

 

Regards

Kyle

Re: SharePoint to OneDrive Business

Hi @KyleADW91,

 

Could you please share more details about the Flow you would like to build?

Where does the Excel template come from, SharePoint Library, or SharePoint List Attachments?

When copy file from SharePoint to OneDrive for Business, please don't use the Copy file action, instead, take use of Create File action.

 

The Copy file action under each connector will only recognize its own path, so the path Dynamic content from SharePoint will not work under OneDrive for Business.

 

Logic should be:

1. Filter out the corresponding file from SharePoint, get the file content,

2. Add oneDrive for Business create File action,

 

Besides, you may just use the SharePoint file trigger,:

Re: SharePoint to OneDrive Business

Hi @v-micsh-msft

 

Thank you very much for your response.

 

I have built a power app that utilises this specific excel template as a datasource located in the root directory of OneDrive. When another user opens the app for the first time i have a once off welcome screen with a button linked to this flow which will copy the excel template (with predefined columns) from SharePoint to the user OneDrive.

 

Hope this makes sense.

 

Thank you
