[sharepoint document library-power automate] get the last folder that had its content modified and copy that folder to another sharepoint doc library.

Hello everyone!


i'm trying to implement a flow that starts when a item or file is modified inside of a document library.

It should get the folder that had its contents modified and copy that folder to another sharepoint document library.


I tried to filter the folders by "Modified" but it seems that it dont get updated when i create or change the folder contents..

So when tested the flow it simply copied the last folder that i created and not the last folder that had its contents modified.


I thought about creating a custom-modified column, it will get itself updated when that folder had its contents modified but i dont even know how to start that... if anyone can help, i'll really appreciate.


And if you guys know a easier way to simply copy the last modified folder to another sharepoint doc library using power automate, please tell me.


Hi! Perhaps you can use an action like "Get folder metadata", so later you can build the rest of the logic as you already have the folder details.
