Sharepoint - Create Item based on Content Type

I have multiple subsites, each of which has a list that inherits from a custom content type. In my flow, I want to dynamically select the appropriate subsite (URL) based on certain criteria and create a new item in that subsite's list. In Flow, I would like to have a way to create a new SP Item with an action in which I can:


1) Dynamically name the SP site (URL).

2) Name the list (by name) so that it is loosely coupled.

3) Name the content type that the named list inherits from so that Flow will know which fields to display on my Flow action for populating.

Re: Sharepoint - Create Item based on Content Type

Hi SSHildebrand,

I am afraid your scenario currently cannot be achieved.

About 1), I assume that you may want to create SharePoint site and dynamically name it. It has not been supported yet, please see this idea, you could consider to vote and comment the idea at here:


About 2) and 3), I would suggest you create a new idea at Flow ideas Forum, I will help collect and report it on my side.
