When a new MS form is submitted - add row in excel, save attachment to designated folder and create link to attachment in folder in excel spreadsheet

Hi team,

 

As subject line states:

When a new MS form is submitted - add row in excel, save attachment to designated folder and create link to attachment in folder in excel spreadsheet.

 

This is my flow:

I have the first part complete - when a new MS form is submitted it creates a row in excel.

I created a folder where I want to store my attachments however it isn't quite working - the file comes across but as this:

I would like it stored as a word document if possible.

 

And lastly - I want to create a link in the excel spreadsheet - so I can click on this and it will take me straight to that document - currently comes up as this.

Thank you 🙂

For those looking to do the same thing as me - here is the solution: 

Once my form was created, I created the excel spreadsheet I wanted to capture data and the folder in which I wanted to save my attachments in.

ID for update file I have as 'ItemID' from sharepoint 'create file' dynamic content.

I only updated my attachment which dynamic content is 'Sharing Link'. 

 

It worked well for me 🙂 

 

A couple things I learn't along the way - Forms can be set up as Group Forms as well. Group forms however will not come up on your forms trigger however you can use the FormID in your URL and copy that. While this worked for me, I figured Id be best to have a secondary back up so have it saving to my onedrive then I am essentially copying / sharing it into my sharepoint site for other to view.
