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 ?
