Table inside the flow

Hi all,

i want to create a flow which converts word doc to pdf and store it in a library. It will be triggered in sharepoint. 
On start the user has to choose where the file should be saved. Therefor i search for some sort of table inside the flow where i can definde the location of the file. For example;

The user choose option"A" on starting the flow, the file should be saved in https://url.sharepoint.com/first/folder

When he choose "B" the file should be stored in https://url.sharepoint.com/second/folder, when he choose "C" it should be https://url.sharepoint.com/third/folder an so on.

A :https://url.sharepoint.com/first/folder

B:https://url.sharepoint.com/second/folder
C:https://url.sharepoint.com/third/folder

 

How can i handle this in a flow?

 

Regards Lars

Re: Table inside the flow

Hi @LH I would personally have a lookup list stored somewhere which contains my locations such as a SharePoint list. Working through this as an option, I could build a list which has the "Title" field and then another text field called "Storage".

Title: A
Storage: https://url.sharepoint.com/first/folder

 

I could then use the Get Items action from the SharePoint Connector to query that SharePoint list using a Filter Query:

Title eq '<Selected Option>'

 

Or is it specifically in Flow that you want to hold all of the routing information?

Re: Table inside the flow

Hi @MattWeston365 

thank you for your answer. A sharepoint list was the other approach i thought about. But now that I have created the flow, I notice some advantages of the list.
