When a file is created, move folder

Hello,

 

I have been reading and trying many various attempts to get the simplest process to execute. I have tried many attempts and variations to change single lines of the code. 

 

I read this in another post...

 

Yes, currently it is only available to list files in a folder, there is no way to move a folder in Microsoft Flow, for the File system connector.

If you would like this to be added, then please consider submit it under Microsoft Flow idea forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas

 

Here is the post "move folder post" 

 

Has this been resolved, can you move folders? I have tried this with "Identifier" without IsFolder...removing this steps, and placing conditions... Please help.

Re: When a file is created, move folder

Hi @angarcia ,

It seems you want to move the new folder in the folder 'PC Booking Review' to the folder 'PC booking Evaluation'.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Re: When a file is created, move folder

Hi @angarcia ,

It seems you want to move the folder 'PC Booking Review' to the folder 'PC booking Evaluation'.

As the pic show, the folder 'PC Booking Review' is in the 'A Garcia' library.

Once the flow runs, the folder will move to another place, so the trigger will can't find the folder 'PC Booking Review' anymore.

So the flow can just run one time.

I suggest you use 'copy folder' action here.

Re: When a file is created, move folder

Hello, thank you for your reply.

 

I apologize that this is confusing in my image. Here is a detail of the process how we are trying to implement it.

 

When sales places a 'Project Folder' under the PC Booking Review folder in their document library...

 

The action will copy/delete or move that folder to the "PC Evalution Folder"

 

So the trigger is placing the 'NEW' folder and grabbing that new folder to create a action with it...

 

Does that make better since...I know my FLOW was terrible
