Upload OneDrive file to Shared Dropbox folder

Greetings,

 

Currently I have a flow created that uploads a file from my onedrive to my dropbox folder whenever I update a file in the onedrive folder.

 

What I want to do is have the flow send the file to a shared dropbox folder that I have read/write privleges to. When I access the Dropbox Update File Step. My only option is to select the files in my root folder in dropbox. There is no option to select the files in the dropbox folder that was shared with me. I can manually drag and drop the file into the shared dropbox folder with no issues. Any idea on how I would correct this?

Additional information to the original post. I am trying to automatically update the file from one-drive to a team folder in dropbox.

 

*Before I didn't know the difference between a team folder and a personal folder. In the original post I reference the team folder as a shared folder.

Hi @djmitz6 

 

Currently there is a limitation with the flow connector that you cannot access the shared folder on Dropbox/ OneDrive. Ideas to include these as features has been posted here (Feel free to upvote the ideas) : https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

These should be included soon in the upcoming releases. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @djmitz6 ,

 

If you mentioned Dropbox Business, you could only select all the folders under your personal folder in Flow, including the Folder that others have shared with you.

You need to add the folder that others have shared to you to your personal folder.

However, it is not currently supported to select Team Folder. If you want similar features to be supported by MS Flow, please consider voting for similar ideas below:
