Hi community!

 

What is the best workaround to rename a file in a SharePoint library with files without using Power Automate?

 

Thank you.

Unless something has changed, you can't. Well from within PowerApps at least.

I don't think you can rename the original file, but you could theoretically patch a new file using the old file's 'item', and call it something else, then remove the original. Your audit history will be gone as its a new file, but its a different name using this method at least..

This could work but.... Remove and create a file could change de ID of the file and I need a solution with the same ID.

Then you can mark @TheRobRush's solution as the answer - there is no way to do that currently without using Power Automate 🙂
