Create a folder with differing title and name properties

I am trying to create a canvas app that prompts the user for the Name and Title properties for a folder. Normally when you create a folder in a SP document library, it populates the Name field but the Title is blank. On my PowerApp form I have two fields as shown below.

I put an employee number - 99999 - in the Number field and a name in the Name field. I have a Power Automate flow that gets triggered when Create Folder is clicked.

The folder is created but the value for the Employee Number field is used for the folder Title and Name. If I enter just a name in the Name field, the folder is created with the name in the Title and Name field. 

Is there a way to trigger the folder creation from PowerApps but have the fields populate their respective properties in the folder? I've looked at a lot of tings online and nothing seems to address this particular problem.

Hi @Steveareno ,

 

You could add a step in your flow to update the title column.

Thanks, but I don't see an Updatefileproperty PowerApps choice in the Dynamic Content list. Where do you get that from?
