When a file is created (properties) Not Triggerring

Hi Everyone,

 

I am relatively new to Flows and I have created a flow as per below, but it does not always trigger. The theory is that a file is dropped in to a specific folder and then the file is emailed then copied in to a "Sent" folder and the original is deleted. It worked fine at first and now generally does not trigger.

 

The files that are droped in to this folder are either saved directly in to the folder or they are cut and pasted from another Sharepoint folder

 

Can anyone help me please? 🙏

Can you please try using this Trigger instead?

Thanks for your time on this... @Mira_Ghaly

I have tried what you have asked but the dynamic content is different.

This is now how it looks but it fails on the Send Email stating there is a "Null" field.

Hi @Dave-Hicks ,

 

Please make sure that the Dynamic content you fill in the Attachment Content field comes from the Get file content action.

Then check whether the body of the Get file content action in Flow run history is empty.

I have got it working up to the last action now (Delete File) See below:

Hi @Dave-Hicks ,

 

It seems that you need to fill the file identifier output by the trigger in the Delete file action, please try again.

I'm not sure what you mean...

 

Thanks,

 

Dave.

 

 

What you fill in the File identifier field of the Delete file action is File content. Have you noticed this?

 

What needs to be filled here is the File identifier.
