move files with lastmodified date > 30 days to another folder

Hi Everyone,


I'm new to Flow, so I'm not sure if this is even possible? Just wondering if someone could provide some feedback? Can the above be achieved?
I see events that are triggered on file creation etc. but not one I can trigger say once a week or once a month etc.


Basically what I want to do is search through a document folder and move any file that hasn't been modified for 30 days to an 'Archive' folder?


Any comments or suggestions?




Thanks in advance

Re: move files with lastmodified date > 30 days to another folder

Hi @Anonymous,


Would you please share information about what the data source you would like to work with?

Actually there is a way to deal with the modified date, first we need the source connection under Microsoft Flow contains the List files in folder Action.

After add the List files in folder action, add a condition, choose the LastModified property as the input of the first Input box, this would add an Apply to Each automatically, after that, click the Advanced mode of condition, copy and paste the following code:

@greaterorequals(sub(int(utcnow('yyyyMMdd')),int(formatdatetime(item()?['LastModified'],'yyyyMMdd'))), 30)

Then under the Yes part, add the Copy file Action, then Add the Delete file Action.

By testing I found some problems when working with the Apply to each, I will update here once I got the response back from PG.

Re: move files with lastmodified date > 30 days to another folder

I also have need for this.  To move files older than 30 days in one folder to another (archive) folder in the same SharePoint site. 

I guess I need clarification on which triggers, conditions  and actions to use. 

Thank you.
