Create folders from powerapps

Hello,

My sharepoint is already created and connected.

I don't knwo if it's smart or not but it's maybe simpler to create folder in sharepoint and then add shortcut to onedrive ?

@JérômeD You'll have to use Power Automate Flow (using the SharePoint Connector) to achieve that. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/sharepointonline/#create-new-folder

On reflection I must use OneDrive for Buisness to perform my app but after checking the doc I realize that there is not option for create folder (only file).

Is this impossible ?

( the doc : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/onedriveforbusiness/ )

 

Thanks for your help !

@JérômeD If you are trying to perform File related operations with the OneDriveForBusiness connector, unfortunately it will not help. This connector does not work as advertised. It only looks for an Excel file in your OneDrive to pull data from.

But this connector works as it should in Flows. So, You'll have to use Flow for that.

I'm already trying that in Flow but i don't find the option "create folder", so I don't know if it's possible.

There is only "create file".

 

Thanks for your help.

@JérômeD Yup, u'r right. There's no function to create folders. The next route would be to Create a custom connector using the Graph API.
