Update Sharepoint List when a column changes in Document Libary



I have created a Document Library that is intended to be used as a Controlled Document Library. I want to use user defined columns to identify specific documents that will be controlled and managed on a Sharepoint List. Not all documents will be controlled.

This column is a mandatory Yes/No.


The flow I have tried to build is;

* When a file in the Document Library (in any folder) has been tagged as Yes in the agreed column, the flow will search the List for this file.

* If the file does not appear on the list, it will create a record.

* If the file does appear on the list, the flow will check and update the record.

I would like to suggest that you would be better off adding columns to your library and managing everything from there - no need for a separate list.  Create views to display different types of documents.

That said, if you want to go down the route you are currently heading, can you post screen shots of what you have so far?



If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

Thanks @ScottShearer 


I have setup columns for the library. How do I create a view for the entire library (including subfolders) as you have suggested?


See my two attempts at this flow below.
