URLs from MS-forms to excel change format

Hi,

I am trying to make a connection between MS-form and Excel sheet saved on an OneDrive location.

Images(6 images) are being uploaded to MS-form which are being saved as urls.

 

Issue

When it comes to saving the urls from MS-form, The format of the urls change and along with that none of them are accessible.

This is the depiction of above problem

URL of image: 

blahblahblah/Sketch_anonymous.png

Value saved on sheet: 

[{"name":"Sketch_anonymous.png","link":"blahblahblah/Sketch_anonymous.png","id":"01Y36AVBVPOAX7NACGM4ZG","type":null,"size":187170,"referenceId":"01Y36AVZL63QKD","driveId":"b!1Rb8u9FYlbVTI-2RKfh","status":1,"uploadSessionUrl":null}]
 

 Any solution or workaround to this will be appreciated!

Thank you!

HI @Anirudh230 

 

You can save only the file ID and then get the file contents by using the action "Get File Contents" or other information using the "Get File Metadata." With this,If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

Manuel you don't need to worry about file paths and URLs since you'll get that from those actions.

Hey @Anirudh230 

 

The files uploaded on an MS Forms form are stored in OneDrive. To get the link to that item (basically that particular file), you can follow the steps here first to retrieve the file location: https://www.bythedevs.com/post/working-with-files-on-ms-forms-in-ms-power-automate 

 

Instead of the get file content, use the create sharing link by path action:

Hope this helps!

Hey @Anirudh230 

 

Nope It is not going to work like that. A better option would be to parse json on each single item over there or in a single question ask user to upload multiple files. 

 

Hope this Helps!
