creating a zip file

Is there a way in flow to create a zip file. I see the ability to extract archive files. In searching, I don't see a mechanism so as a request. Can we add this functionality to the convert file function? I see it will convert to a PDF. Converting a file to a ZIP would be awesome!

Hi,

I’m afraid there is no action about Converting a file to a ZIP in MS Flow currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

There isn't an in-built action. But I have developed a method that enables this functionality:

Hello Paulie78,

 

This method would work with File System?

Not a local filesystem, I think it would work with files hosted on OneDrive.

That would be great. Do you have a rough idea which steps need to be changed to make it work with OneDrive ?

better late then never:

I used an external connector (Encodian) for this.

However, Paulie posted a video telling how to create ZIPs for free:

HI,

 

I have a similar scenario, but mine is i need to zip a file/report which is downloaded from PowerBI Paginated report. The files are in ecel.csv format. My requirement is to zip those files and email to different recipients based the report data.

 

Is there any way to zip the files using Power Automate flow?

Thanks in advance!!
