Using a hyperlink to access data on subsite in sharepoint 365

We have a project reporting site in SharePoint 2010, which I am trying to update to SharePoint 365.

The current version allows project managers to access their project data by clicking on a link on the parent site, which takes them to a page where the data is displayed. The attached screen shot shows this. Apologies for the poor image.

This flow was created using SharePoint Designer 2010. I want to recreate it in SharePoint 365, using Microsoft Flow. Is this possible?

 

So far, I have set up the parent site and populated it with project data. Rather than linking to another page on the parent site, I have created a subsite with the intention that, as with the current version, by clicking on a link at the parent level, the subsite will display the project data for the selected project only.

 

Thanks

Steve

Re: Using a hyperlink to access data on subsite in sharepoint 365

Hi @kennoe

 

You could create a new list on SharePoint Online, one of which can be of type Hyper link.

Then use Get items action in Flow to get the items in SharePoint 2010. The usage of SharePoint designer and Online connector is basically the same. You could refer to the link below: 

SharePoint Connctor

Get items action need to use the gateway when establishing a connection. For related configuration, refer to online doc:  GateWay-Config

Then use Create item action to create the corresponding item in the SharePoint list.

 

Please take a try.

Re: Using a hyperlink to access data on subsite in sharepoint 365

Thank you, however you may have misread my request. I do not want to connect to the old SharePoint 2010 database. I have set up a new database in SharePoint 365 and want to only use that database. The SharePoint 2010 example I used was only to show what I wanted to do in SharePoint 365.

 

I want to be able to use out-of-box solutions like Flow if possible to avoid having to use apps like SharePoint Designer.
