Update Folder Modified date when new file added

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to create a flow that will update the date modified on my case files (folders), when a file is added or modified.  The goal here is to have the case file's modified date match the most recent document modified date.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Update Folder Modified date when new file added

Hi @cdn4lf ,

 

There is a property called 'Folder Path' under When a file is created (Properties only) step. So you could use that and go through the API update link which @Pstork1 mentioned.

Re: Update Folder Modified date when new file added

The modified date is normally populated by the system and can't be updated manually.  There are ways to force it to update using a REST call. This article talks about how to make these updates in Flow, but the REST call is the same.

Re: Update Folder Modified date when new file added

Thanks.  How do I get the name of the folder the file is located in?  I'd like the flow to run at the library level and every time a file is created, adjust the date modified on the appropriate folder / case file. (I fully realize I'm probably missing something very basic here).

Re: Update Folder Modified date when new file added

You should be able to get the name of the Folder from the Path for the file.  But this is not going to be a simple easy Flow to write. It should be possible, but I doubt you are missing something basic.
